That famous speech. You know the one. Rev. Martin Luther King at the March on Washington, 1963.
Yes. That one.
4 words that are his legacy.
"I. Have. A. Dream."
I, too, have a dream.
Took one step closer to that dream this week when I pushed the SEND button.
One finger. One button. SEND.
I worked and worked editing it. Making sure it was just right.
Stayed up late, painstakingly going over every word I wrote. Thought of a title, wrote a synopsis.
I entered my first writing contest. There. That is my dream. I want to be published one day.
Can I just say how hard it is to sit my butt in this chair. Day after day, pumping out words that are up there dancing around in my head that I can't go to sleep until they spill out on the page. Characters burning dinner and riding around town on a bicycle with a flower basket in front. Changing, growing, discovering...yep. This really IS my idea of fun. Making up friends!
I am realistic. The rejections will come. Author Vince Flynn had over 66 rejections letters. 66! Wow. That's a lot.
He never gave up and he was a bestselling author. Dreams. They do come true.
I am wondering...what's your dream?
OH...I have another one. It is simple really. Can I just snap my fingers and go back here?
