This wonderful post inspires us to keep striving toward the goals we dream about, and reminds us WE CAN DO IT.

Writers Envy

Everyone hopes. Everyone wishes. Everyone dreams of something better. It’s human nature to fight for the best version of yourself–for your children, for your spouses, for your mothers and fathers and friends, but no one tells you what it takes to be the best for YOU.
Dreams keep you awake at night. They haunt you. They break you whenever you think you’re strong enough to continue alone. They dish out highs and lows, and you have no control because you’re determined to follow wherever they lead. They smother your life in obstacles, and through it all, you have to learn that YOU ARE GOOD ENOUGH.

Author: Julie Holmes, author

A fiction writer since elementary school (many years ago), and NaNoWriMo annual participant for over a decade, I have been published in small press magazines such as "Fighting Chance" and "The Galactic Citizen". I write adult mystery with a touch of romance, mystery with extrasensory elements, contemporary fantasy, and epic fantasy, and I'm represented by the fabulous Cynthia Zigmund of Second City Publishing Services. My debut novel, "Murder in Plane Sight", has been released by Camel Press (an imprint of Coffeetown Press/Epicenter Press). In real life, I am a technical writer and empty-nester with a wonderful hubby, one cat (what writer doesn't have cats??), two dogs, three chickens, and more chipmunks, squirrels, and rabbits than any garden should have to deal with. My garden, our hobby farm, and Nature's annual seasons are some of my muses.
