  3. I’m having a terrible time with number 5 right now! 😉 Love this!

    I have been blessed by your writing over and over, JD. Press on!

  6. Proofread. Edit.

  7. You are right. This is truly good advice. Practice does make perfect.

  8. Bird by Bird — by Anne Lamott — My writing coach would always say — If you want to be a better writer…be a better reader 😉 So grateful to read your blog entries … God bless your continued journey and ministry …

  9. You do well, JD. 🙂

  10. Love it. Hate it.

  11. Love this!
