Monday Motivations; What is My Foundation Made Of?
Hello friends and welcome to another willful week of writing. I’m thinking a lot this morning about why I succeed at nailing my goals on some days and why I crash and burn on others. What components make up a “good” day and what pitfalls appear on the “bad” ones? How can I build a… Continue reading
Abandoning Self-Rejection and Taking Up Gardening Instead
Hello friends and welcome to another inner-edited edition of Just Another Struggling Writer. I’m just another struggling writer.

This week’s update is going to be a short one, mostly because I don’t have much ground to cover that I didn’t talk about last week.

Kerry Share’s love for writing started, as it so often does, as a love of reading at an early age. At age 11 she wrote her first short story, a Harry Potter knockoff of dubious quality, and her love for creative expression was born.

Now in her thirties, having taken a break from creative endeavors to cope with an ever changing life and landscape, she is determined to make her dream of a writing career reality.
