A friend of mine just had a book launch for her second mystery novel. I attended the event and told her I couldn’t have been more proud if I was her mother. She laughed and poo-poo’d all her hard work. It is so refreshing to be around women who have a clear view of who they are and what they want and go after it. No excuses—or at least no iffy ones—keep them from moving ahead. It doesn’t even matter if their goals are not achieved because they are being true to their desires. How rare is that? Too many women get all gummed up with the “hafta’s, and needta’s, and can’t but wanna’s.
Watching Judy as she read an excerpt from her book was exquisite. I was glowing along with her, and it was the best part of my day.
