The rest of the time, from September to June, she spends working as an elementary school teacher.

  1. Just stopping by from the A-Z Challenge list to say “Hi” 🙂

    As a writer….number 7! Great quotes honey.

    Good luck with the rest of the challenge!



  2. Although I like all of them, Quote #1 really speaks to me. I’ve lived a majority of my life doing things that OTHER people wanted me to do. I’m finally finding MY voice.

    Tales of a Pee Dee Mama


    • Yes, sometimes it takes a while to do what you want. For me, no one was telling me I couldn’t. I just didn’t have enough confidence in myself and my own writing. Now I write because I like to and it doesn’t matter to me if people have “better things” to do with their time- that is their choice. This is mine. 🙂


  3. Yes, number 7 for me. Refusing to quit.

    Also stopping by from the A to Z. Enjoy the rest of the month!


  4. I like quote # 9. You’ve got to have passion! Dawn

    The Write Soil


  5. Vikki and Rebecca – You are right. Refusing to quit, writing because we want to or putting the time in that it takes, we do all of it because we have passion. Happy writing on A to Z.


  6. Barbara White Daille

    Are we allowed more than one. 😉

    Love #6, but my favorite has to be #7. I may waffle on some issues, but not the writing. As I said for Day Q, Quitting is not an option!
