A-Z Challenge Letter E

I believe these words to be true. E is for enthusiasm. Nothing is achieved without some enthusiasm. Find something in your life to fill you with passion. Something you want to do more than anything else. 

For me, the passion is writing. My high school English teachers would have said no way. A college professor told me I had talent she didn't know how to help me develop it. I believed in myself. I read books, and books, and yet more books on how to write well. I practiced and practiced and practiced some more. The end result I have written five novels, two novellas, a children's book, and two ebooks. I have a poetry book and a self-help book for tweens and teens. 

I keep learning. I am taking a Master Class with James Patterson. The result of which will be a different kind of novel. I have put book four in my series on the back burner. I will be pullin another book out of moth balls and reworking it. I have a couple of novellas to be written and yes, more children's stories. 

I also share my love of writing. I do it by encouraging other writers to write, to consider publishing, to go for it. 

When you think of enthusiasm, think of this:



  1. This is wonderfully encouraging for all aspiring writers who think it isn't possible to do anything with it. You are so right that enthusiasm is the key to accomplishing what we dream of in life.

  2. And if we're enthusiastic about what we do, we keep working to be better at it as you are doing.
