  • Writing can be a powerful tool for processing life experiences. Whether through journals, letters, or other forms, it helps in organizing thoughts and making meaning out of things. It's important to own your chosen medium, even if you don't fit the conventional mold. Catherine wasn't always a polished writer, but she found her unique way of expressing herself.

  • Proud of Your Work: Be proud of what you've accomplished. Even years later, your work can continue to impact and resonate with readers. Don't underestimate the impact your work may have on others. You may never fully know why you're putting your work out there, but it can make a difference in someone's life. Embrace the unexpected opportunities that come your way.

  • The decision to pursue publishing often stems from a burning question or a topic that has been on your mind for a long time. This initial spark can drive the entire writing process. Connecting with other writers and sharing experiences can be essential for sustaining the writing process.
