If you want to make your dreams come true, the first thing you have to do is wake up.” ~J.M. Power
For as long as I can remember I have wanted to write a book. As a child I wrote short story after short story. Many of them had illustrations. I wish someone had kept them, but alas they haven't been seen in years.
These days my computer is filled with stories.
I used to feature a short story on this blog every Tuesday. I can't remember why I stopped.
What is holding me back?
Why did I write a 51,000 word novel in November and then promptly file it away never to be looked at again.
I'm afraid of rejection. Like most bloggers I thrive on words of affirmation. I want everyone to love everything I do. But let's face it, life isn't really like that. In fact, it is often the words of criticism that help us grow the most.
I need to find a way to get over my fear of rejection and wake up.
- I'm a 41 year old (gasp) freelance writer, school cafeteria manager, wife and mother. I have three children and one anxious and overweight beagle. I use my blog to make others laugh, to share some cool crafts, to document my lunchlady adventures and to lament about the challenges faced by us all on the journey called life. Thanks for visiting. Please leave some crack...um...I meant some comments.
