Or, how an editor makes all the difference. . .
Jennie Nash, my editor and book coach, titled her Friday blog post last week, "What Bravery Looks Like In A Writer." I am so honored that her post was about me! I am working to embrace courage more often in my daily life (a lesson I learned from my lady crush, Brené Brown), but I didn't have much courage in regard to the piece I wrote (Helping Her Helps Me) because of the sensitive subject matter and because it involved my daughter. Jennie encouraged me to explore my reticence to attach my name to the essay, and to make sure I was making my decision for the right reasons. None of this would have happened without her, and I couldn't be more grateful.
