Dream Deferred

Dreams have to be put aside for a plethora of reasons – some valid, some are mere excuses because we fear failure.

It is our most sacred duty to ourselves to be true to who we are and what we want to achieve with the time we have been granted on this earth.

I refuse to give up on my dream of being a published writer which has been set aside for far too long.  My short-term commitment to making this dream a reality is:

  1. Write everyday
  2. Blog regularly – write and interact with other like-minded people
  3. Read
  4. Research/Bookmark/Follow-up
  5. Complete editing current MS
  6. Finish plot notes for next MS

My long-term commitment to making this dream a reality is:

  1. Write everyday
  2. Submit current MS
  3. And/or prepare current MS for self-publishing
  4. Write next MS

My dream will not sugar over and it will not explode. It will take time, but it will happen.  Thank you Langston Hughes for the haunting reminder to remain true to one’s dream.

Do you have a deferred dream?  How will you challenge yourself to bring it to completion?
