The Angel Inside

Posted in Angel Inside, Chris Widener, Inspiration, Writing by DLFowler on February 28, 2011

That’s the name of a little book by my friend Chris Widener. It had a huge impact on me. I unlocked my lifelong passion for writng and have been a happy camper ever since. (Except for those times I’ve been distracted from writing or from spending time with family.)

Well the sole purpose of this blog is to encourage you to look up Chris, or follow him on Twitter @ChrisWidener  – He can help you believe in yourself if you struggle at doing that. And his book, The Angel Inside, impacted me enough to change my life for the better.
