“ It was tiring. I think it would make better use of our time to submit our chapters ahead of time so we could have more time to read and comment on them.

Having the support from people who are going through the same doubts, wishes and hopes that I am is a great relief, and spurs me onward to complete the circle of writing, editing and publishing. Besides, there are some really nice people in this group! ”
