Do you have a goal, dream or desire in your heart you want to pursue?
Yesterday in my daily writing challenge group, the writing prompt invited us to look back on our writing goals and progress and to write about what happened that we didn’t expect.
More than a year has gone by since I started the challenge to write 500 words daily and now I’m in my second year of the writing discipline. I share what I’ve wrote because the principle applies to any dream or goal you decide to pursue. By sharing my experience, I hope it will encourage you to persist in pursuing your dreams.
Are you finding freedom in expressing your voice, your unique writing style?
I think it’s important to celebrate little as well as big achievements in our lives. So yesterday I bought flowers and basked in the glow of achievement.
With joy, I celebrated a couple of speaking opportunity that came my way for “Write Your Story NOW” and I celebrated completing my monthly writing goals as part of the 500 word a day writing challenge group. Once again for the month of September I wrote, Every. Single. Day.
“Save the whales! The whales are in trouble!”
I strolled along the beach in Oak Island, N.C. on my vacation and spotted a large circle with writing in the sand plus a large drawing of a whale. The sand message intrigued me so I stopped to read what she wrote about the whales.
A young girl (11 years old) came up beside me. I introduced myself and found out her name is Callie. I asked Callie about her writing and drawing. She explained the plight of the whales.
What if you could write something that would set millions of people free?
Thomas Jefferson did when he wrote the Declaration of Independence in July of 1776. Never before in the history of mankind had anyone written these words. “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
