Six Word Saturday: Dreamin'

Dream Big

Dream Bold

Right now!

If there is one thing I have learned in the last week after R passed on and the horrific catastrophe in Haiti is "don't wait". When it comes to your dreams, of who you want to be or how you want to live your life, patience is not a virtue because none of us know how long we will be sticking around this crazy joint called Earth. Of course, we all have responsibilities, some more than others (hello people with children!) but even if you can only manage to carve 10-minutes a day to work on your dream, you'll be going forward and ready to dive in when the time is right.

So what is my big, bold dream? To be a published author. I am revising my NaNoWriMo novel right now... at the rollicking speed of one page a day (kind of like the 12-step method of revising). I want to have it in respectable enough shape to start sending it out to potential agents by the end of next year (just in time for me to do NaNoWriMo 2010). To be a published writer has been a dream of mine since I was at least 12 years old - but I've never had the stamina or discipline (i.e., confidence) to attempt it. But why shouldn't I? Why not me? I'm going for it, baby! What are you going for?
