You’ve all heard them, the cliche “life is too short to live someone else’s dream” (Hugh Hefner), “Life is too short to work so hard” (Vivien Leigh). One I read the other day “Life is too short to wait” hit me harder than a kickball to the head in 5th grade. Yes, I know, it’s overly simple, obvious even, but it took me reading it to realize I wasn’t gaining any time to achieve the goals I have made for myself!
We always say, “One day I will…”. Well my “One day I will…” is write and publish a book, and hopefully be able to make a living off of my writing. So, today I start my journey, and this blog. I will attempt to describe the challenges, triumphs, pitfalls, and successes of writing a novel and attempting to get it published.
Hopefully I will pave the way for some people, learn from others, and get to know some fellow novelists along the way. Perhaps if I am lucky, I will inspire someone else to start their “One day I will…”
So now, I must ask you to fill in the blank..”Life is too short to…”?
