August 2022: ASPIRATIONS

As we finish the month of August, here are the ten things you may need or consider as you go on your writer journey:

1.) Believing in yourself is never a bad thing.

2.) Keep your goal in mind.

3.) Write for yourself first.

4.) Write because you love it.

5.) Envision where you want your writing to go.

6.) You are more talented than you think.

7.) Think where you want to go, and write yourself there.

8.) It is not a bad thing to dream exactly what you want.

9.) Don’t quit: you’ll never see what you are going after.

10.) Repeat.

I believe in you–keep going.

The time you make to write is never going to be in vain.

The time you make where you tried to write is not wasted.

The time you could have written and decide to do something else is a reminder that some things may be more important than writing.

Yet, you are not powerless–unless you believe you will be.

You bend time–time cannot bend you.

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.

August 2022: ASPIRATION

The definition of aspiration is a hope or ambition of achieving something.

On this ambitious journey, I want to remind you all that it will take work, and sometimes believing something will happen is the only thing which will power the journey forward.

Yet, what I must remind you dear writer is that what you seek is not impossible. If you quit–you can be assured that your dream will not come true.

The questions I must ask you, which will allow you to keep going:

1.) What is your dream?

2.) How will you go about it?

3.) What will you need to keep going?

It won’t be easy, but it is not impossible.
