Daydreaming: I Never Knew I Could Write Unitl Someone Told Me...

I Never Knew I Could Write Unitl Someone Told Me...

I never knew I could write until someone told me.  It's true, I'd actually never even thougth about it.  I often wonder where I would be and what I would be doing had that one person kept his opininion to himself, never given me his opinion and encouraged me to pursue a career in writing. 

It's so important to tell someone "good job" or " I loved it" or "you are great at".  Children everyday grow up with no self-esteem and then we wonder why they have a hard time and lack the skills necessary to achieve success.

When was the last time you took time to tell someone they were doing something right?  The more time I spend on this sometimes impersonal internet that we all love so much, the more I realize how damaging our time here can be.  It's so easy to hide behind a made-up user name and bash everyone who dares enter your personal cyber-space. 

Where did constructive criticism go? How did snarky, rude and bitter take the place of manners? 

One thing that I would like all of you to know, whether you're one of my readers or not, I value you.  You're special. Each of you play a small role in my life now because our paths have crossed and that's just how I am. 

Whether you read to add a special pleasure to your life or you write because you can't not write, we share a love of books and I'm happy you are here.

Since this has been such a rambling post, I'll try to bring it all together now.  I'd like to challenge each of you to reach out to someone whether it be a new reader or a new author that you've just cyber-met. Find out something about them and then lift them up. Today, I'd like to take the opportunity to introduce you to an interesting literary project I was made aware of. The link is below.  Ten writers have produced a novel blending each of their talents into one very interesting work of fiction entitled FOSTERING GUILT.  When I read a little background on the project it reminded me of the teacher who took the time to encourage me. I hope you'll take a look and then come back and share with us who found to lift up today.  I promise that everyone will come out a winner and be blessed for it.


Let's encourage some real DAYDREAMING today and help someone else get one step closer to making their dreams a reality!
