I was reading a blog that has become one of my favorites on writing and wanted to share:
Never give up on your dreams by Cristian Mihai
One of my favorite quotes goes like this: ”Courage is not the absence of fear but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear.”
Ambrose Redmon said that.

I don’t think I ever told you how I became a writer. Or if I did, it was long ago.
When I was a kid, I didn’t really like to read or write. Of course, I made up stories. My father had brought me this Atlas of the World, and I found about this city in the US called Seattle. And I thought, “What a great name.” I didn’t know how it should be pronounced, so I pronounced it seetle or something like that.

And thank you to all of you who responded to my question in the last post. I did not expect encouragement, but I thank you very much for it!
