O N E  H U N D R E D

My 100th post, I can't believe it! There were a lot of late nights writing, usually with the music playing and perhaps a wee  glass of wine:)   It was my husband at the time telling me to stop talking about it, "start writing!"  So, with his support, I took the challenge to heart, enrolling in weekend writing [...]
