I can't believe it's Friday already. This week has flown by. Probably because I was deep in edits and didn't have time to think about anything else. Time does fly when you're having fun.

Hope - stock photoLast Saturday I attended one of my writer's group meetings -   Check out our writing contest - inexpensive to enter and fun to write.

Anyway, when we have some sort of publishing success, we get to pick out a stone with an inspirational quote on it. I've been a member four years and I got to pick my first stone because I signed a publishing contract. I picked "HOPE". I don't know why. Honestly there wasn't much choice left. We have a very active group of writers.

I got to thinking. What are we if we don't have hope. I've know people who've given up. Heck, I have plenty of times. It's not a happy place to be. It's sad and lonely there. I'd lost hope I would ever get my novel published, but here I am on the brink of my story being out there for millions to read. (Hey, it's possible)

So here's to hoping you have a good week and please keep your hopes alive.


  1. "Hope is the feeling you have that the feeling you have isn't permanent." -- Jean Kerr

    My week didn't fly by. I'm so stressed out, I'm barely hanging on. But I'm glad yours did and I'm glad you got the edits done. So I HOPE you have a great weekend!

  2. Hope can be tough to hold on to in this business. Glad you kept at it!

  3. I don't know what anyone would do without hope. If they are bright or, they thrive on it even if they are unaware of it – in my opinion. Love your posts and I'm going to share this one on Facebook. :-)
