In Others’ Words: Worth the Dreaming
“Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway.” Earl Nightingale (1921-1989), American motivational speaker and author
I hang around writers. We’re dreaming all the time. Dreaming up imaginary characters — and how to mess up their imaginary lives so that we can create an imaginary happily ever after for them.
And all the while we’re playing make believe, we’re dreaming dreams for ourselves too. We’re dreaming of agents. And — oh, yeah! — a publishing contract. And seeing our book on bookshelves — both the ones in actual bookstores and virtual ones and the bookshelves in our families’ and friends’ homes.
I know writers aren’t the only ones with dreams — and that dreams come in all sizes and shapes. So today I’m wondering: What are you dreaming about?
In Your Words: While you’re reading this blog, I’m on my way to Monterey, CA for a writers retreat. (More on that when I get back.) While I’m gone, I’m taking a blogging break. So I’ll see you next Monday. But I am curious to hear about your dreams. And if you’re interested in quotes, don’t forget that I always post a Trust quote on my Facebook page (“Trust” is my word for 2012). And I post a daily Romance quote on my Author Facebook page too.
