Women On The Move: Anna Quindlen, "Write for Your Life"
Are you one of those avid readers who wishes you could make sense out of putting words on paper but are convinced that you can’t?
New York Times #1 bestselling author Anna Quindlen has just one response: Ridiculous!
Not only can you, but you should – to connect to yourself and to those you care about in diaries, journals and letters. Doing so is a record of who you’ve been, who you are and who you are becoming.
“To write the present is to believe in the future,” Quindlen says.
Be inspired to pick up a pen, or sit at a keyboard, after getting tips from the best!
