    Gals! To be honest, this video BLEW. ME. AWAY. I watched it twice in a row and will probably watch it again before I resume my writing. Everything said in this video is SO. TRUE. I simply feel that much closer to publication b/c I understand–intimately understand–th things discussed in this video.

    Love you gals! :)

    Thank you so much for these amazing videos. It amazes me how many times I’ve thought, “I know exactly what they’re talking about!” Lots of the videos have helped me realize that although I’m unpublished, I am a writer. Although I’ve been writing for years, I just never considered myself a writer before. And I may follow one of these tips and put myself out there.
