A writer's life is not as reassuring as... let's say a nurse or a teacher. (full time, steady income, health benefits) I totally get this quote!

At least I've got the husband one covered. Gosh I love him.

Love it! My mom, whom we lost just before Thanksgiving, was always a bit afraid to read my pubbed books. I think she was afraid what she might find there!

Whoah! And ain't that the truth! LOL. When I wrote my first novel, and gave it to my mother to read (the mother in my ms was SOOOO based on my mother), my mother said, "I'm not sure I like the mother character." hehehe. I said in return, "Don't worry, she becomes nicer as the book goes on."
