My dearest Readers,
This will officially be Maggie Grover's last post to my blog. She has offered such a marvelous presence to this blog, I shall miss her dearly. I know you will all miss her too...
Thank you Maggie and endless love,
It's April and spring is here - at least according to the calendar, if not by the weather. It's a time of renewal and change in my book. And, on that note, dear readers, this will be my last posting on Women with Fire.
First, I want to thank Delilah for her generosity in allowing me to post on her blog these past 9 months… it was not just a fabulous opportunity for me to write about my love of women in history, but it was also a fabulous learning experience about my own writing life. How could it not be, when I was researching such powerful, accomplished, actualized women?
I've been so inspired from all my postings -- from Boudicca and her warrior will in the face of adversity, to Madame le Pompadour setting her sites on a goal and achieving it, to Martha Washington having the courage to create the life she wanted, to our Neolithic female forebears and their amazing ability to adapt, to Marietta Holley and her need to write stories, to tidbits reminding me we rock as women, to the three powerhouse women of last month's post and their sheer strength, gumption, and nerve.
I've come to realize that it's time for me to focus exclusively on my own novels in order to better walk a little bit in their footprints. I thank all the women through history who have stood up, spoke up, and made a difference so that I have the opportunities I have now. And, I thank you all for taking time to read my posts!
