Today is an anniversary of sorts. It's been six years since I became a published author. During the past 2190+ days I've experienced a number of exciting firsts and achievements. I've made connections with wonderful people and made online friends who have enhanced my life.
At the opposite end of the spectrum I've weathered a number of storms. One in particular (think hurricane rather than downpour) nearly broke my spirit and resolve and if not for a supportive and select group of authors in the same predicament I may not have survived at all.
