I've recently had the great joy of meeting new writers, both published and unpublished, through the My 500 Words
group which I joined in January of this year. While my expectation goal was to use the group as a tool to rebuild a daily writing habit it has offered so much more. I have found the interaction there truly enjoyable and gained several new friendships.
One friend, who I am getting to know better, with all of her spunk and good humor is author Amy Bovaird
. We all have a story to tell and Amy's is extremely inspiring. Her memoir Mobility Matters
is coming out in just a few days.
Amy is, in her own words, a vision-challenged globetrotter. She's been to places that I have only dreamed of and has much to share from her experiences. I love her writing voice and the way it reflects her zest for life.
You can currently you download the first chapter of Mobility Matters
for free on her blog
. I highly recommend that you subscribe while you're at it. She is a delightful storyteller who is fun loving and adventurous. Not to mention the fact that you'll find her very encouraging.
