Joshua,

As a writer, I know how scary it is to put yourself out there, face repeated rejection, and know how much it takes to follow your dreams. I’m really proud of you for having the tenacity and belief in yourself to pursue your passions and dreams.

I remember when you were taking the online writing class your freshman year and heard about an editor who wanted short stories submitted. You worked on it laboriously and wrote and rewrote. When you finally submitted it, you were nervous for a month. Then, you forgot about it. About a year later, you finally received an acceptance letter. The book was released last year. I’ve never been more proud of you when I saw your pen name in print last year. It was a testament of who you are as a person and a writer. I’m proud of you, son!

Love, Mom

What a really awesome story!! Glad it got you out of your slump for now...I had a several month slump earlier this year, so I feel your pain. Not even sure what got me out of it, but this layout looks like a great start for you!
