View: Five Minute Friday {8}

24 May


As an amateur writer, the view from my desk is one of stacks of memoirs of authors I’m reading, notebooks I’m working to fill with my words, piles of books on the craft of writing, and an endless mug of Jasmine Green tea. Self-imposed deadlines each day force me to keep cranking out work.

I’m living my dream. Keeping my head in the game because sitting on the sidelines wishing I were on the field playing wouldn’t be nearly as exciting.

Writing every day is a dream I’ve always wanted to fulfill. And even though it’s stressful making ends meet – now I know where the term “starving artist” came from – I’m not about to give up. I’m only just getting started.

“Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.”                                                                                                                                             – Ben Franklin

    You are doing all the right things. One day it will pay off. Keep writing.

    Yeah for you! I dream of getting that motivated – this morning is a perfect example: two cups of coffee, a house full of sleeping bodies, and I’ve written nothing…what I want and what I get accomplished haven’t meshed lately.

      Thanks, hun! I’m trudging along. And am learning a ton. I feel so blessed to be doing something I love so much.

    Oh.My.Word. I’m so happy to find you through Five Minute Fridays because it sounds like we have A LOT in common. I too dream of writing. I wish you all the best and even though it may take a lot of work to get there, you can do it! ~Many blessings

      Thanks so much, Nita! I’m so glad we found each other, too. Your writing blog is neat. I’m looking forward to following you on your journey. I wish you all the best, as well. Keep in touch.

    Keep living your dream; it’s the one I dream too. I have £30 to see me and my kids through to next week, but I’d rather that than stressed/depressed/working a job I hated. One day, a major publishing house is going to realise we’re the next big thing…

      I totally agree with you, Stacey. Keep living the dream!

I'd love to hear your take. Comments make me happy!
