I don’t deal well with frustration. I only have a few emotional enemies, and that is at the very top of the list. Not many things can reduce me to a fussy pole of unproductivity quite like frustration.

Being a visually disabled writer is interesting, to say the least. I used to do pretty well in the typing department, doing upwards of 60 wpm. I enjoyed typing, and could get my thoughts on the page pretty quickly once I had figured out what those thoughts would be.

Please check those blogs here:  Nonnie Jules, Bethany Turner, Maureen Kovach, Nancy Bell, Joy LoBamijoko, and Michelle Abbott because they’re all talented and supportive writers.
