My writerly fabulous friend, Kyra , wrote the following post. It moved me to tears because SHE is simply stunningly amazing and can do anything she wants to do. She mentors Mama women not only through NaNoWriMo but through the pitfalls of what it means to be a writer going through withdrawal symptoms! As mothers, many of us feel that we are neglecting our ‘responsibilities’ when we take time to develop ourselves in our writing crafts. Kyra helps her little NaNoWriMoMamas through these dangerous hairpin turns and keeps us motivated and — JOYOUS throughout the process. I only wish that my mentor could see her own fortitude and passion. You see, the only reason her little Mamas could shine is because she helped them to realize that they could.
Without further ado, here’s Kyra’s wonderful post.
