…hearing from my new favorite publication, Bella Grace, that they want to publish a photo essay of mine in their next issue. Sometimes, writing dreams do come true (but I did have to submit first).

Now I actually had to acquire Photoshop to make sure all my photos have the right high resolution. I’d been scraping by using free software for my photo editing so far. I guess it was high time to get Photoshop if I was going to take myself seriously as a photographer. Now I’ll even delve into learning Photoshop!

Says my daughter, “Mum is becoming a real photographer and not just a lady with an expensive camera.”

Aha! And I had just gotten used to being a “real writer.”
