So I've been really bad at writing lately. I know why. Trying to work on it, but life truly takes over. Last night u watched a video blog of myself almost a year and a half ago about the idea I had for my novel. Seeing my excitement made me feel that excitement for the story all over again. So I started writing again and couldn't stop. It's funny when something like that inspires you all over again. I don't know how authors keep at it...then again it becomes their full time job so that's understandable enough. But I cannot always write only when I find inspiration. I need to find the time.
I have been reading more (on a side note). The more you read, the better of a writer you will be. Stephen King stated that in his book On Writing.
I need to stick with it. I've begun to think of new ideas for children's books again too! I see my students and the excitement they have every time they book up a book and it makes me smile. I would love to create a book for them.
Life cannot cloud your dreams. Challenge you, maybe, but the dream should be in action and we should fight for it.
