Other than myself, there are a few people that can be held accountable for the fact that I became a writer.
1.) My fifth grade teacher, Mrs. Gardener.
2.) My twin sister, Bee.
3.) My mother, who I still call Mommy.
There has been a lot of people who have supported me and believed in me and my writing over the years, but these three people are the people that actually got me to sit down and write. Whether it was their words or their actions, it changed my life forever. And every time I think about where I began this journey, I come back to them and the small but important part they played in my creative life.
There's not enough space in the world to describe how they changed my life, but I'm going to try and contain it in a few posts throughout next week.
Until then...have a great weekend everyone.
