Why wait any longer? Follow your Dreams Now!
Why not follow your dreams? For the past five years I’ve doubted myself. I told myself I can’t write, I can’t read, and I had no idea how I would ever start or finish this book. The book began taking over my life. I chose to listen to those who doubted me rather than those who supported me. I battled hard to finish my first draft through waves of depression, anxiety, and a complete lack of self confidence. I wanted to give up over and over again but ploughed on through the tough times.
Now that I’ve finished my first draft – I can now sit back and see the book with clarity. I’m 30% happy with what I’ve written, but more importantly I’m proud of myself for charging through, not giving up, and ticking off the first box. I’m feeling optimistic about the final product and I got so many ideas for the next draft. I can see where I need to improve and what I need to do and I’m feeling much more confident and excited about the rest of the book.
I’m about to begin the second draft in the next week and let me tell you it’s going to be an enjoyable read! It’s funny, it’s scary, it’s exciting, it’s sad, it’s enthralling, it’s very very cheeky – and you’re going to love it! I’m going to take it slow and enjoy the process whilst weaving my humor and creative talents amongst the words. Sometimes in life there is no point running away from your fears – you have to tackle them head on. If someone tells you you can’t do something, then BELIEVE IN YOURSELF and use that energy to spur you on. If you have a dream – then go for it! Don’t dwell on it…and never give up. There is no such thing as failure if you give it a go!
