Living the Dream!

Okay, folks, I’m inviting everyone to participate in this post. It’s all about living your dreams. What is yours? Are you living it now? If so, where did you begin? How long did it take for you to achieve what you wanted? What kind of obstacles did you overcome? If you’re not living your dream, what’s stopping you?

My dream has always been to write. Ever since I could remember, I wanted that little place in the country where I could spend my days writing and enjoying life. Well, I’m not exactly living that dream. In fact, I’m not even close. But I have no one to blame but myself. I spend more time researching the issue on how to become a writer than I actually spend on honing the craft and selling my work. I have too much knowledge rolling around inside my head that it gets confusing at times and I don’t know where to begin. But I feel, and I’ve been told as well, that 2007 is my year, so after all this time, I’ve finally found my footing and decided to get serious.

If you write full-time, if you write part-time, if you’re living a dream now, how did you do it? Come on, tell us your story and allow the rest of us to gain some insight into the workings of a successful, happy lifestyle. Do you have some advice or helpful tips for the rest of us?


  1. I want to be published in "Weird Tales". I want to retire and write full time for a living. Little dreams. Nothing much....just little dreams. I want to win the lottery. I want to run for elected office. I want the fashion world to suddenly announce that OLD AND OUT OF SHAPE is IN!!!! I want an XBOX 360. I want an email from Adam saying "Stew, you were right. You were right."

  2. If you have an xbox 360 then do you have an xbox you aren't using? Mine blew up and I am trying to find someone wanting to get rid of their old one.
