One Day I dared to live
what I had dreamed for years!
DON'T WE ALL WISH TO HEAR "THEY'LL
NEVER STOP TALKING
I raised my kids, and wonderful they are. I worked a lifetime it seemed to always just get by. I had dreams, but I also had responsibilities.
I always loved to write things, I wrote anything that caught my interests. short stories, funny ancedotes, poetry. I wrote to the editor of the local newspaper and loved to see my name at the end of my letter.
I dreamt of writing a book one day. One day, I sat down to the computer and began to type. I had no idea where my musings would take me, I had not planned the book but simply a story. In less than a month my first book appeared for sale on Amazon.
Once it was out there I re-read it and found that there were some mistakes and it seemed like I lacked some of the structure and grammatical skills I needed. After months of agonizing over it. Doing edit after edit it is finally ready for Re-release and book number two is well into planning.
Working on my own blog now and freelancing for others, has given me the time to chase yet another dream. This one to compliment the the other.
Now I shall study for my BA in Creative Writing and have never been happier with myself.
I am sometimes asked "What kind of writer are you?"
My response? “The starving kind. I believe that writing is an ART, often times one must sacrifice to maintain the artistic integrity of the work.”
DARE TO LIVE THAT DREAM...
