Hello, guys! Do you know what’s funny?
We all emphasise how much we want something, how we hope we’ll achieve our goals and dreams, but we rarely work for it.
Wanting will get you nowhere. Hoping isn’t enough.
Hard-work is what you need.
I get it, you might not have time or money to spend on your dreams, but if you want to make them come true, you better start getting rid of excuses.
Excuses are the nails used to build a house of failure. – Don Wilder
You have to find a way if you want to make things work. No one will do it for you!
But I’m not all talk; I’ll use this post as an opportunity to tell you I’ve just enrolled in an online course on Future Learn, which is called Start Writing Fiction. A lovely course that is. I completed week one and it was a very interesting experience. Take for example one of the exercises: you have to write two pieces of 50-100 words, one consisting of three true facts and a fictional one, and the other consisting of three fictional facts and a true one. It sounds simple, but it’s harder when you sit down and think and try to come up with something.
I don’t know if you can still enrol to it, but I suggest you give it a chance. (HERE)
My point is: I don’t have any money right now and I definitely don’t have much time, but it doesn’t stop me from doing something to rich my goals. Regarding the literary domain, you can’t expect not to read or take some courses and became successful. I know you don’t want to hear it, but I’m not going to lie. There are enough sites who promise you’ll be the one!
I don’t deny you can be – and I do indeed hope you are going to be – but not if you don’t spend weekly some time to improving yourself.
Read a specialised book, take some courses, connect with other writers, read poetry, keep a journal, read books for self-development but do something that helps you grow!
In this digital era, we seem to have stopped feeding out soul and mind – and we often poison both of them with poor entertainment sources. It’s too important to be forgotten.
