Thanks, Lillian. Yes, I built the website. I originally started this online ministry in 2007 when I used to be able to do a lot of writing. It takes next to no effort to maintain it now. I'm writing about chronic illness these days. I'm not able to do much at a time due to my health, but I do what I can and I'm keeping it simple. Even though it isn't much, I'm just grateful to be able to string words together again. I couldn't write for some years and I missed being creative.

I haven't entered the challenge every week, but have entered maybe 6 or 7 times this year. I had been so busy editing, I hadn't time nor energy to write. The editing jobs have slowed down some, but I know 2 MS should be ready for me to edit. I feel like my gift is more in editing than my original work, but am still working on my one-day-in-the-far-future idea of getting Wrigley Grow-with Me books from board books to elementary school aged. It's been fun to write them again.

It's been great to see you in the challenge again. It would be awesome to see you publish your Wrigley books. :)

Okay, it’s done. It really does take five to six months to write a book proposal! It’s finally finished and on the way to one of its intended destinations. One goal accomplished. :superhappy

I write even when I think I can't, because I must. :-)

I love to write. Nothing escapes the crush I have on the written word. I'm hooked on words!!
