Please be safe during this festive time and be especially careful, when you are out, driving on the busy roads.
I am looking forward to seeing each and every one of you next year.

It is back to work for me today, but maybe I can sneak in a few blog posts this week before Christmas.
If there is anyone who is taking this week off from blogging, then MERRY CHRISTMAS in advance.

Keeping true to the Insecure Writers Support Group theme, which was started by the fabulous blogger and writer, Alex J. Cavanaugh, I am actually writing about a real fear today.
I have been thinking for a while now about how we writers put a lot of love, effort and dedication into our stories, whether it is novels, novellas or even short stories. With every piece we write, we share a part of us, or at least with me that is what happens.
I have had this terrifying haunting feeling that…what if nobody, aside for my critique partners, ever reads any of my stories? What if nobody ever wants to publish them? What if I never find a literary agent who believes in me and my writing enough, to represent me? What if I only ever end up writing for myself?
When I started I was more than happy to write for myself, but now that I have actually finished a book and created these amazing characters, call me naïve, but I really wish to share them with the whole world by getting them published. So what if I believe so much in myself and my book and then…my dream never comes true? What if I have just been kidding myself all along?

Better is possible over at (http://clpcs-betterispossible.blogspot.com), wanted to know if there is anything that she needs to know before renovating her kitchen as well?
I would say that you should definitely know what you want done. Do you merely want a facelift done to your kitchen, meaning just the cabinets and the décor changing, or would you like to gut your kitchen and possibly also make changes to the structure?
Then the other thing would be, to have people do the work for you that actually knows what they are doing. It is worth spending the extra few dollars on someone that you know is definitely a professional. We ended up having to do a lot of the laborious work ourselves and now I just wish we could have hired a professional, as it would have saved us a lot of time and the work would have been done properly the first time.
The third thing would to be know exactly what you want, because we made changes to the kitchen, including changes to the structure and now we do not have enough storage space, so we have to come up with another plan.
Other than that, I would say just try and find a way to make this whole renovation process easier on you and your family, because it is quite a big thing. Hope I could help.
Thank you so much for the question.
