Life as I know it

Confessions of a Wannabe

For as long as I can remember I’ve wanted to be a writer. For some periods of my life I actively pursued that dream. But, man oh man, fear is a dream killer of the highest order.

But finally, FINALLY, at this point in my life, I’m learning to pursue the dream afraid. You’ve heard the saying: Do it afraid. Yeah, here I am doing it afraid.

No shame in fear. But there is some shame in allowing fear to steal your entire life.

So I’m on a mission to develop as a professional writer. I’m writing something most days of the week. I’ve been blogging consistently twice a week for a couple of months. I returned to my first literary love-children’s fiction. I’m actively working on craft.

It’s scary just writing this and posting it in a public arena.

I’m determined to live without regrets from here on out.

So this is me.

I’m a writer.
