“Daydreaming. It’s all part of a screenwriters job! Dream on writers!”
I haven’t posted about me writing maybe because it seems that I haven’t been able to write as much as I want. Because my day seem so busy. It’s my struggle of balancing working, being single mom, and all the stuff that comes with that and trying to write but I know cutting out writing is not an option even if I have to sacrifice sleep. I feel that if I don’t write and pray in the morning my day just doesn’t go smoothly. And any way another reason I can’t is because I have so many Ideas. Also I’m working on a tv pilot that I think is great, key word “I “. But I hope that I can really find that balance of all these things and still make my passion a top priority. I really ready to get paid for what I love to do but right now can only hope and pray.
On Thursday, I started my 21 days of gratitude challenge, where it challenges you to give thanks for all that you have, even if you in less than ideal situation. I think it’s a great thing to do especially with Thanksgiving around the corner. I know that we can take stuff granted and it a not until we lose them that we truly appreciate them. So I’m going be thankful not just for these 21 days but have a attitude of gratitude for the rest of my life. If you want to join in feel free. I will be posting what I’m thankful for and sending cards to those I really appreciate being In my life. Oh I forgot: I am thankful for my family!!!!!!!
Peace, love, write
It seem like this past week, yes the week, I have had a block and I couldn’t think of anything to write. I tried writing prompt, reading, movies, working out, everything but I just could not think of anything to write. I was miserable, and was kind of depressed. But it wasn’t until today in church when I got bit of inspiration, finally I have something to work with. RANDOM ALERT!! I can’t wait for Christmas
I thought this quote was very good.
All people dream; but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recess if their minds wake in the day to find that it was a vanity. But the dreamers of the day are the dangerous people, for they may act their dream with open eyes to make it possible
Seven years after graduating from university, Rowling saw herself as “the biggest failure I knew.” Her marriage had failed, she was jobless with a dependent child, but she described her failure as liberating:
Failure meant a stripping away of the inessential. I stopped pretending to myself that I was anything other than what I was, and began to direct all my energy to finishing the only work that mattered to me. Had I really succeeded at anything else, I might never have found the determination to succeed in the one area where I truly belonged. I was set free, because my greatest fear had been realized, and I was still alive, and I still had a daughter whom I adored, and I had an old typewriter, and a big idea. And so rock bottom became a solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life.
– J. K. Rowling, “The fringe benefits of failure”, 2008.
This quote from J.K. Rowling is such an inspiration to me because I have gone through a similar situation me being jobless, and a single mother as well. What inspires me is that even though she may have failed as being a wife, or at her job, it was a freeing experience, free to be who she really was. I can really relate. Over the last couple of years I have been hiding who I was, my dreams, my likes, dislikes , everything, because I guess I was embarrassed of what people would say. Now, I am accepting who I am day by day, trying to be fearless and step out on faith to follow my dreams. Because I don’t want to die regretting things that I didn’t do out of fear. I’m all in!!!!! Sky’s the limit!!!!!!
Peace, Love, and Write on,
