“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.

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!!!!!!

Yes I have writing fever it seem like this whole weekend, my brain has been filled with ideas for movie, tv shows, plays, there are so many ideas I feel like my head is going to explode, but I am so thankful and grateful to god for filling my head, and giving me such a vivid imagination. I. Was watching Oprah next chapter Sunday and Tyler perry was her guest, he talke about his journey to where he is now and I found his story so compelling and convicting. He grew up in poverty and he was supposed to not make it past 30 years old I see how god blessed him with so many things. What i got from it was to dream BIG, put in all the work, and no matter how many doors close on you, all you need is one open door to make it. So I was very encouraged to keep going after my dreams no matter how hard or rough it gets. So keep
Love, peace, write,
