I work on my writing, because I love doing it.
There are some I know who tell me one or another of my stories is not good enough. Who knows, they may be right. However I will not betray my characters by butchering their story.
One person told me that I need to determine where I want the story to go. Truth be told, it’s not up to me. When I first sit down to write a story I get to know the characters, at least the main one. They lead me along and I learn more about them as I go.
My first book is a huge learning curve. I have always written stories, but only dreamed of writing a book. My first attempt, and complete joy is “Not Too Late Forever”. I have written and edited for a substantial amount of time. I have faced praise from a few and criticism from many more.
The book and characters have filled a void in my life. Besides that, they have given me purpose in many other endeavors.
Despite critiques that are less than favorable, I will follow my passion. It has become so much more than a dream. My biggest regret is that I have not been able to share it and my other stories with many others.
Good, bad or indifferent, I will continue in my own way, and on my own path, to dream and build for the future. I hope you follow your dreams as well.
Keep the coffee flowing.
