Here’s one of the many reasons why I am still writing:
…I just believe in you. I read your story and felt it then. You can be big if you want to.” Leila Brown.
How cool is that? Leila’s words were stuck in my head all day yesterday. Simple, short, but strong enough to give me energy to get up this morning and work on my new story that I’ve been working on for months.
Really, sometimes a little push, encouragement is all we need to keep on moving. And it helps if you believe in yourself, too.
Family, work, home, personal dreams all vie for my time. Of course, for me, family stays in the number one spot and personal achievement like finishing another story at the bottom. But the fact is, my goal is still on the list. And it’ll stay there. So when another Leila comes my way, I can look at that list and say, “Yeah, there it is. I can do it.”
If you feel that you’re writing is going nowhere, think about what you’ve accomplished so far. Even if you just wrote a page or two, for me that in itself is an accomplishment. Trying is an achievement. Some people dream of becoming a writer. But dreaming will not take you anywhere unless you start penning your story. At least that’s my opinion if you want to be in the writing industry.
