Can an ordinary person be a hero? Can everyday life be a grand adventure?
Two years ago, someone told me it was possible to make a living as an independent writer. I started with nothing but an overactive imagination and a handful of success principles. I have yet to achieve my goal. Yet I have found that the chase is fulfillment in itself. I look back and see my progress as a person and a writer, and I’m astounded. It all began when someone told me I could.
My goal with this blog is to share my misadventures, my foibles, and the lessons I’m learning in the hope that you will see that you can. Life is not only lived on the evenings and weekends. Every day might not be fun, but when spent in pursuit of a dream, they are meaningful, and certainly not boring.
