Do what you love and strive for your dreams…that’s what I always tell people when they say they’re too busy. I know life can take over and it’s very hard to find the time to do what you’re passionate about, but NEVER give up! Even if it takes you a little longer to achieve your goals – you have to at least try. And that’s what I’m doing. As most of you already know, I still work a full time job and have a family. Finding time to write my novels is very difficult when I have a full life with lots of responsibilities. So whenever I have a spare moment I try to write! I’ve started bringing my computer to work and on my lunch hour I’ll tuck myself in the back room and keep writing.
Quote: “Miracles only happen to those who never give up.” – unknown
I was about to sign off for the night (it’s 11:00 pm right now) but something was itching at me, so I’m back online and posting this now.
Today was one of those days where there is just not enough hours in the day to do everything. I got up really early this morning to blog and then worked all day. I came home, spent time with the kids before starting on edits on Lost. I was thinking (just a few moments ago) how much I admire writers. The writers who work full time/ part time, have families and after everyone is asleep get on the computer to write until the wee hours in the night/morning. The authors who don’t sleep and only live on caffeine to get them through the day…you all are the ones I look up too!
So many times I feel like giving up because it’s so much work. But then I think…I’d be giving up my passion, my dreams and goals. I’d be giving up on these characters that are stuck in my head and want to have their story told. I’d be letting everyone down and letting myself down.
It’s so easy to say, “I’ll work on it tomorrow.” Or “I’ll just watch this movie and then start on it.” But that never happens. Now, don’t get me wrong…I’ll NEVER quit writing. This is what I’m meant to do! I love it and it’s what makes me happy.
I love the quotes:
“Never give up on something you really want. It’s difficult to wait, but more difficult to regret.”
“I’m not telling you it is going to be easy, I’m telling you it’s going to be worth it.”
“Never give up on something you can’t go a day without thinking about.”
So again, authors near and far, authors who I know and others that I’ve never met…you all are amazing and all the work that you do is inspiring! Keep it up and never give up on your dreams!
Good night everyone!
Three things run through my mind at this very moment…
ONE, my life as I once knew it will never be the same.
TWO, the person I’m in love with might not even exist.
THREE, the deception that has unfolded before me has the power of life and death.
Sixteen year old, Breanna Davis, has heard the saying; life isn’t always what it seems…well, that saying rings true now more than ever. As horrifying visions appear before her, revealing tragedies that will forever change the fate of those she loves, she realizes that she may be the only person who can stop them from becoming reality.
Amongst the chaos of this new discovery, Bre is faced with a stranger, Eve, who moves in on Bre’s friends and begins to follow her every move. As Eve’s true motives begin to surface, Bre must fight against, not only the visions, but the dangers Eve holds close.
There is another secret kept- Collin, a boy held captive in Bre’s dreams, the boy she is secretly falling in love with but isn’t sure he even exists. As she tries to make it work with Austin, an old friend who could possibly be more, Bre battles against her feelings for Collin.
Bre is faced with an almost impossible decision, to choose her life or follow her destiny. If she doesn’t intercede, people will certainly die. If she does, her own life could be at stake. In the end, if she fails, she’ll lose everything.
