Hello to all!
I would just like to first thank you all for visiting my blog and experiencing this journey with me. Right now I’m on a journey to my dreams—to be a best-selling author! Shooting for the stars I know, but aiming for anything lower isn’t acceptable. Right now I am a 22-year-old college graduate (6 months out), but I hope to be a well-known author.
I have to admit though, there are a lot of odds that are stacked up against me. While chasing after my dreams life sometimes intervenes, such as: family issues, a yearning for love, (up until today) a lack of a job, and the stress of paying back student loans. Not to mention that becoming a successful writer is as hard as becoming a singer or an actress. It will require a lot of time, patience, and most importantly, faith. But I must not falter because even when I’m awake all I can see is my dream.
So here is the goal: Turn in my collection of personal essays manuscript to a book agent with the hopes they will take me on and get me a publishing deal.
Agenda: Finish the last three out of ten personal essays and write a query letter by the deadline.
Motivation: Family, Friends, the desire to inspire and an inspiring story to tell.
Deadline: August 1, 2011
Essays completed: 7
Essays need to be written: 3
I’m striving to be the best here. I believe that I can make it, but the real question is: do others believe that I can make it? In due time we shall see. So let the journey begin!
Lord guide my steps,
