I love Erma Bombeck’s philosophy, and have a suspicion she qualified as a workaholic. Just sayin’, because for her to fulfill this quote, it stands to reason.

Are we using it all? I’m definitely giving it my best shot, to make up for lost time during those years when I knew writing was my vocation but wasn’t sure what to write. But we do the best we can at any given point in our lives, don’t we?

But all the way along, my novel fodder reserve kept rising higher and higher. And now, I’m working on another WWII story, this time a cozy mystery. Fun to concentrate on something entirely new, while rejoicing in a manuscript that has morphed into a published novel.

Land That I Love…career that I love, albeit late to the starting line!

  1. You surely know how to get right to the point don’t you my friend. What a great question to ask ourselves at the end of each day. “Have I used it all?” Loved this post, and can’t wait to read your latest book ma’am. God’s blessings.

  2. My mother loved Erma Bombeck and I inherited her admiration for this faithful, funny, and extremely talented author. She was blessed with wisdom and wit and the ability to share both through her writing. Miss Erma shared so much with us, but we lost her too soon. Gail, thank you for inspiring us fledgling writers by reminding us to keep on going–don’t give up! Congratulations on your new book.
