Each morning I wake-up with the whisper in my ear to “Write.”
It is a silent whisper that only I can hear and compels me to keep following my dreams. I have been blessed to work from home and navigate my own hours around my family. It is not my dream to always be balancing the books, chasing after the receipts, and reviewing proposals. I do it for my family and it helps to keep our business running at full steam.
My dream is always in the back of mind and it waits for its scheduled time to appear like clock work where I can spend a moment in my own world. A little piece of space and time that is just mine.
I have set goals for the coming months my biggest is to publish my book. I am at a crossroads between following the conventional route – hoping a publisher will grant me a pair of ruby-red slippers with a book deal. The other thought is throwing caution to the wind not waiting for the blessing of a publisher and follow the yellow brick road to self-publishing. In the end I know both will lead me to the safety of home with the knowledge that I put my heart and soul into my book.
I have become a firm believer in one project at a time and in the spring I want to host my own short-fiction contest with an actual monetary sum to gift to another fellow writer. The devil is in the details and I am slowly working out the kinks in the plan. In the New Year there will be an announcement and I hope all of you wonderful creatives participate. It is my small thank you for sticking with me all of these years!
Last but not least I have decided to begin my own Etsy business. I am in the stages of testing and research before I share it with all of you. I want to make sure everything I create is beautiful and worthy for this world.
Each day I want to feel that I have committed to living in this world and not just idling my time away. The older I get I begin to feel an urgent need to do more and enjoy the life that was meant for me.
I want to know what dreams are whispering in your ear? Do you have a plan of action?
