Labor Day Weekend

I have had the greatest Labor Day Weekend. I started the weekend continuing work on my new universe. I ended the weekend by writing on my short story universe.

Overall I wrote more than 2000 words a day and kept my stories right on moving. I also was able to spend a lot of time with my family and get some work done in the yard. Sadly we’ve got to go back to normal life tomorrow but I’ve set some pretty strong goals that will require me to spend a good amount of time writing if I want to meet them.

How was your weekend?

Why am I Doing This?

There are a lot of people who would ask, why am I doing this? Why am I interested in taking on the job of writing? What makes me think I can make it?

Honestly, these are all very good questions. I have felt since I was a teenager that I had stories in me that needed to be released on the world. I have always loved the idea of writing, but never really taken the time to become a professional at it, keeping the dream out of my reach. However, the only thing keeping that dream out of reach was me.

I could blame fear, I could blame lack of knowledge, time, etc. but overall at the end of the day the only one keeping the dream out of reach is me. I haven’t taken the time to sit down and knock out the words. This is my call to action, this website is my call to get to it and to start living the dream.

I’ve laid out a plan that will inevitably not be followed as life happens and the day to day is hard to follow, but this time I’m not going to back down. This time I will be focusing on my dream and will take the time to get the work done. This time I will not fail.
