So if you guys have been following us for a while, you will know I have a goal in life. I want to be a writer, I guess you could argue that I am writing right now as you read this, therefore, I am a writer, which I guess is very true. I applaud you young or old one, good argument points used there, be sure to bring those skills up in the debate team. However I am not being paid to write this, one day I want to be paid to write. I want to say it's my job, I want to say I'm working, and just sit on my laptop and type type type away. I want to unravel myself away in the 26 letters jumbled together into words. I want to do it so badly.
And I don't want to write just anything, I don't want to write articles or factual information. I want to write fictional stories. I want to be an author. I want it so much that sometimes, I stand in a bookshop and feel myself tear up imagining my book on that YA shelf, my name on that book. 'One day,' I turn to the unfortunate person I dragged into this shop, 'One day my book will be on there,' I say. However, I'm not sure how much I believe it.
Just because you want something doesn't mean you're going to get it. So what am I doing about that? I'm doing what I like....writing. I mean it's a win win really, I get to what I love, fuels me deep within my veins, my heart, my brain, I get to explore my characters, my stories, and then potentially one day I can send it to someone in the hopes of being published. And so far I have experienced no's but hey that doesn't mean one day I won't experience a yes. I'm waiting for that yes. I'm working for that yes.
Why do I want to be an author? Because it's one of the things I have found that makes me feel something. I go to bed every single night thinking of a story, it helps me relax, it helps me actually go to sleep. I sometimes pretend I'm in the situation of my characters, my characters are real. They're real to me, and I want them to be real to other people. And one day they will be, that's the goal.
What's your goal? Because goals are here for us to reach them, so what's your plan?
