Thank you to Cagsil for starting this thread. I certainly appreciate the encouragment.
Thank you to each one. I am very grateful for all the words of affirmation & encouragement. It's kind of humbling to be in the company of so many fine writers.
This HubPage community is exceptional & I am thrilled to be a part of it. I wish I'd discovered it years ago.
The craft of writing is exciting, the marketing of our work is often a pain that settles south of the neck & can stay there for years & years. Lots of good writers get discouraged. I hope we can always be cheerleaders for each other.
