I love smiles – secret little smiles, easy, breezy smiles and bulging with joy smiles. I love that smiles are tiny gifts being passed from one person to another all throughout the world, right now – gifts we can all give and receive, no matter the challenges we face. So, when I sit down to write, I smile. And as I try to craft my stories, juggling words and phrases, I imagine a child – sitting, reading and smiling. When I am tired and do not feel like writing, when I have received rejections and am questioning my skill, my ability and my creativity, I write for smiles.
