A Grateful Writing Life

You send it to a reader for feedback, you send it to a literary journal for possible publication, or you send it to a literary agent for possible representation. And then you wait. Ideally you work on more writing while you wait.…

 So Much More Than Meets the Eye- my experience with Oprah! By Meg Nocero

 

As the inevitable was creeping closer and closer, I refused to even allow any doubt that my mother would not recover to enter my consciousness.  My mom told me that she did not want to give up and I made it my mission to help her in any way I could.  While I had experienced depression before when I was coping with the life changes of having a baby, I had never contemplated…

But being happy, isn't the same as knowing what you are doing.  Is it? 

Going over the checklist of a so called successful life, I'm looking pretty good.
