This is my dream…the number one on my bucket list…the one written in all caps in bold black marker, underlined, circled and boxed and then circled again.
My dream is to write–not just 10 minutes a day or 500 words a post. I want to write all day, every day.
I want to spend my days writing–writing until the pages are full and the story is all out and my fingers hurt and my shoulders pinch and my heading is swimming and my heart rejoices.
I want to look at a blank screen, wonder where to start and magically find the beginning.
I want the story out there for the world to see and read and share.
I want to revel in accomplishment and feel the satisfaction of a job well done.
I want to put aside the excuses and the fears and shut out the voice that taunts, “You can’t.”
I want to shout, “I did it!” instead of whispering, “I wish I had.”
I want to tell a story and build a world full of characters who are brave and heroic, funny and smart, lovable and despised.
I want my work to be my passion and passion be my work. I want to stop saying some day and make today the day.
I want to live the dream. I want to write.
