When I told some people close to me that I wanted to be a writer, there was no shortage of negative comments and discouragement.
“It’s a really hard field to get into,” “Everyone wants to be a writer,” “You’ll never make any money doing that,” and comments of the type were pretty standard.
The naysayers can really get to you. They’re probably the reason I ended up moving away from writing in the first place.
We all have dreams. Whether they are dreams we’ve had since we were children, or dreams we’ve developed as we’ve grown older, we all have those things we wish we could do. We all spend at least part of our lives daydreaming about what could be.
That’s no way to live… always wondering what could be. If there is something you really want to do, if there is a dream you’ve had for a long time, it’s time to stop dreaming and start planning.
