Today is my husband's birthday. Not sure what festivities will ensue but I suspect my sons will take him out for a round of golf. In keeping with the writing focus on this blog, let me combine a post about him and my writing.
This business of writing requires a lot of time. When I was teaching full time, my writing took up many hours of my evenings and weekends. My husband watched a lot of baseball and basketball games alone. Mostly without complaint.
He listens to my success stories, read reviews and cheers me on through thick and thin. He brags about my books to everyone he can manage to bring the subject up to. I have to name him my number one fan.
No one can succeed in this business without support of family or friends. I'm fortunate to have both. Today I'm going to thank my husband, again, for supporting me.
Who is your support in your writing career? Do you give up some family time to write or squeeze it in in other ways?
