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.
