I love quotes. And here is one of my faves by Ella Fitzgerald.

Just don’t give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don’t think you can go wrong. — Ella Fitzgerald

I saw this quote at a time when I was restless with writing. I was floundering and stuck in the write and revise stage. And didn’t seem to be making any progress. Now, I love writing. I always have and it has always been my career goal but somewhere along the way I got off track.

Originally I started writing, started pursing my goal of being a published author because of my love of reading and the lack of diverse characters. And I still love writing my more adult, erotic stories but this is the heart of things  for me.

I feel that I’m finally back on track and heading in the right direction (it’s been a rough few years). And it’s mostly because of a new group of writing friends I’ve gotten to know better. They’re not new, we knew each other from online writing communities, but we never really took the time to hang out and get to know each other before.
