I am the supporter of ambitious dreams. If you told me you dreamed about sprouting wings and flying, I’d do what I could to support and encourage you. I believe anything is possible to the one who dreams imaginatively and persistently
(and being a little crazy isn’t too bad either!) lol
You remember when you were a kid and adults would ask you, “so what do you want to be when you grow up?” and you’d say an astronaut or ballerina or dragon rider or some other imaginative profession?
That’s awesome and I think we should keep hold of our childhood dreams, no matter how ambitious they seem.
If you had asked me back then what I wanted to be when I grew up you would’ve gotten everything from astronomer to geologist. But my top favorite love ever since I was a kid was working with, training and riding horses. So you often got ‘cowgirl’ as your answer. But lately a new passion has emerged (although my heart will forever belong to my Horses) I think I have finally decided on my truly ambitious dream.
What is it you ask? Ok I’ll tell you (if you haven’t already guessed).
I want to be a published author.
A shocker I know! But jokes aside I’ve dreamt and written and prayed about it for nearly half my (now) 18 years and the desire has only grown. Its stronger then rejection. Stronger than hurtful criticism. The Lord has put this dream upon my heart (and my vast imagination) and so my passion for words and for storytelling has grown too great to contain! If anything I’ll just keep writing and posting here but wouldn’t it be cool if yall could go and pick one of my novels off a bookstore shelf? That would be the icing on the cake for me!
(Mmm, cake, that sounds good)
Wait what was I saying?
I want to share with you the longer works that I can’t post here, all the epic ones that wake me up in the middle of the night begging to be written down. I want to bring light back into the book world and to change lives…
one page at a time!
How? You’ll just have to wait and see and, no, that’s not code for: ‘she doesn’t know either’! lol.
I actually have one novel I’m preparing that I want to send out for submission. I’ve been through this process once before; it’s hard but I’m hoping this time it will be a success.
I feel like this is
and I get to be the protagonist this time!
But do you know what the best part is?
You guys get to come with me as I journey towards those bookstore shelves. So let’s mount up our dragons and see where the winds take us today, ‘cause I’m hankerin’ for some
