Opening Up.

Have you ever taken an art class where everyone sits around and critiques your project? I majored in Art so this was a daily occurance. People in your class will sit around as you nervously bring a project up that you have put your sweat and love into and . . . rip it to shreds.
When it came to these "Critique days" I made sure that I put on my extra thick armor and kept reminding myself that it wasn't me personally that they were attacking, but in the back of my mind I promised myself that I would never let any of the other things that I loved go through this kind of ridicule and rejection.
It took eight years for me to come out of the closet and admit that I wanted to write a book. I had been writing one for years in my journal. Me and husbands courtship turned into this huge world wind romance and even had the wicked ex-girlfriend. Of course looking back on it our dating was actually pretty boring, but if you got to read my journal WOW!
So from now on I am going to stop being scared of my desire to write and I will shout it from the roof tops. GAIL ZUNIGA IS A WRITER AND I'M DON'T CARE WHAT YOU THINK!

I'm making it a goal to post something that helps us all feel more motivated. So enjoy.

"Enthusiasm is one of the most powerful engines of success. When you do a thing, do it with all your mind. Put your whole soul to it. Stamp it with your own personality. Be active, be energetic, be enthusiastic and faithful, and you will accomplish your object. Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm."

Ralph Waldo Emerson

This is my first ever Blog

I'm a little intimidated by the whole blogging thing. I thought this would be easy, but in reality it's more confusing than building a website. Oh wait I've never built a website. Okay I think I'm screwed.
