Diana Bletter

This is so empowering! I just posted the same idea in my latest writing contest on writing our best chapter with our lives. As I wrote, "Life Is Not A Test. You will not be graded. You will always be applauded. (If you at least try.)" That's stepping out and bravely writing our stories.

Amen to the voice in the head that says "Who Cares?"! I always read the reviews on Amazon of various memoirs and amazed at the range of comments. Thanks once again for the timely reminder.
