One of the significant rewards in following my passion to write has been the amazing people I have met along the way. I have met writers from various walks of life and in different stages of their writing pursuit. Each one has given me a gift to take on my journey, although it may take some time to ascertain it. It’s like finding money in the pocket of an old pair of jeans. It makes you smile and you feel just a little more ahead of where you were a moment ago.
I have been guided and encouraged by the most unlikely sources and found friendships in a vulnerable society. Writers must put themselves out for criticism and critiques from readers at large and fellow writers. I appreciate gingerly stepped advice and caring encouragement of my peers not only to myself but to others attempting to make their story heard in a compelling way.
On days when I think I must be totally irrational for trying to make any kind of living doing what I love, I remember the brave souls who have done it before me and those who share my journey. We encourage and cheer each other on to face the fear and/or the obstacle. Creativity now becomes indispensible in every area of life to reach the goal.
In a world of realism, truth emerges in what at first appears nonsense authoring wisdom to the seemingly impossible.
“There is no use trying,” said
; “one can’t believe impossible things.” Alice
“I dare say you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was your age, I always did if for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
What impossible task will you believe in today?
