Fifteen years ago this week, I started writing. I didn't own a computer, but I had plenty of paper and pens. I sat down at a table on the screen porch and began to put words on a page. When people ask me when did you start writing, I tell them, "June 15, 1994." They want to know how I remember the exact date. I explain that I made a commitment that day. When you really commit to something with your heart and soul, you remember.

It's fifteen years later and guess where I'm heading this morning?


  1. Congratulations! Fifteen years wow !. I hope to be as brave as you. Enjoy your day

    Have a good day

  2. Happy Anniversary! So glad you made that commitment and gave us your wonderful books :).

  3. That's truly AWESOME, Kimberly! Congratulations! Wow, wish I had wrote down the date when I started; I only remember it was late summer, 2005, but I guess that's better than nothing . . . :)

    What you've accomplished in 15 years is truly inspiring . . .

    Oh yes, THANKS SO MUCH for visitng my little blog; it really made my day!

    Have a great day!

  4. Happy Anniversary. This fall will make 8 for me. Sure hope I have half your success the next 7.

  5. Congratulations to each of you! So many people want to write a book. So many people never write the first word. Anytime you sit to put words on a page, you are continuing the journey. That is success.

    Cystal, I enjoyed your blog and I'll be back! Thanks for your regular stops at the nest.
