August 2022: ASPIRATION

When I was 13, I told my Reading/English teacher that I wanted to write 4 novels. She dismissed that, without ever saying my name. And I have chased that ever since. Stories with my name on it! The feeling of having something complete with my name on it, and people buying it.

That feeling never gets old. Ever.

What I have discovered in this 28-year journey with 8 years in active writing and publishing, I am still that 13-year-old girl wanting validation, dreaming of attending NYU and becoming a best-selling author. I take her with me–everywhere!

She is my aspiration. All power, fire and searching for blank pages.

I have given myself permission to be great–and now, I must be.

Now, I will be.
