it’s just me

me profile

Who said “writers write” ? It sounds so simple. When do you give up on a dream because you come to the realization that you were too lazy to follow through with reaching for it? I have always sworn (as often as possible, much to the chagrin of those around me) that I would not die without having SOMETHING published. But I’ve never actually TRIED: to write, to show something I’ve written to anyone, to actually try to achieve that dream.

I’ve come to the conclusion that the internet may be the closest I may ever come. That I’m just an average Jane with a dream, like millions of other average Joes and Janes out there. Thing is, I still think the stories I have to tell are good stories. Some are funny. Some are sad. But if I’m lucky, I’ll make them all worth reading. We’ll see. Time will tell. Doesn’t it always?

Update: It’s 2016? When did that happen? Yes, I am still working on my story and my goal is to finish it this year, get it edited and actually try to get someone other than a family member excited about it. It’s just matter of making myself sit down and WRITE.

  1. Hey mom, glad to see you are indeed expressing your inner being somewhere in the world. I can’t tell you how happy it makes me to see that you followed through with my suggestion of going to the writing class. I see you have made some new friends and I hope, I really do, that this might help you drive forward and publish something in the near future. Don’t even try to tell me that you don’t have any stories people wouldn’t want to hear, I listen to them everyday and I am astounded. Anyway I love you and for the love of god KEEP WRITING.

  2. I agree. It is so important to at least be accountable to the dreams that live inside us and won’t let us go. If for no other reason I must write as a way to express my human-ness. Keep on writing. I will too.
