I'm a writer because I have stage fright.
In the beginning of the week, I realized that I had 100 followers for my blog, A Vase of Wildflowers. I started the blog in mid-September and it had really taken off. I wouldn’t be here without you.
I am overjoyed that so many people want to regularly check my posts. I hope that I can continue to help others on their artistic journeys and continue to update everyone about my journey on the road to traditional book publication. Please continue to follow me as well as add your voice to what I hope will become a thriving reading and writing community.
As far as the video goes, it is a thank you, an update, and a sample of my current work. If you want to skip straight to the reading, please fast forward to the time 7:03.
Please forgive my stumbling and stuttering.
