Dusting Off A Dream Writing Success At Any Age

Dusting Off A Dream Writing Success At Any Age

“Give me a​ stock clerk with a​ goal and I'll give you a​ man who will make history. Give me a​ man with no goals and I'll give you a​ stock clerk.” - J.C. Penney

Country recording artist Tim McGraw confided in​ an​ interview that there was a​ guy at​ a​ 7-11 that could sing him under a​ table. So,​ why is​ that guy serving up Slurpees while Tim is​ performing to​ packed stadiums?

The reason is​ the​ same for writers as​ it​ is​ for singers. There are many incredibly gifted writers who will never have a​ book published. the​ reasons are many,​ but it​ often comes down to​ their willingness to​ follow a​ dream or​ to​ shelve the​ dream for other reasons – some noble and some steeped in​ fear.

“The young do not know enough to​ be prudent,​ and therefore they attempt the​ impossible -- and achieve it,​ generation after generation.” - Pearl S. Buck

There is​ something about the​ idea of​ writing without fear. the​ dreams we​ may have once had do not need to​ remain a​ simple reference point for ‘what if’s’ and ‘might’a beens’.

The good news about writing is​ that the​ more real-life experiences you have the​ more you may be able to​ relate. it​ is​ never too late to​ pick up a​ pen and began to​ compose something extraordinary.

Sometimes the​ only thing that will set you apart from a​ better writer is​ simply your willingness to​ write – then share it​ with others.

"Self-trust is​ the​ first secret of​ success." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

The noble art of​ writing allows a​ wordsmith to​ venture into the​ hearts of​ humanity and welcome others to​ the​ exploration. Unlike certain other entertainment fields,​ becoming an​ author is​ something that can and is​ done at​ any age.

Bessie Anderson Stanley

He has achieved success
who has lived well,​
laughed often,​ and loved much;
who has enjoyed the​ trust of​ pure women,​
the respect of​ intelligent men
and the​ love of​ little children;
who has filled his niche and accomplished his task;
who has left the​ world better than he found it
whether by an​ improved poppy,​
a perfect poem,​ or​ a​ rescued soul;
who has never lacked appreciation of​ Earth's beauty
or failed to​ express it;
who has always looked for the​ best in​ others
and given them the​ best he had;
whose life was an​ inspiration;
whose memory a​ benediction.

Perhaps its time to​ dust off a​ dream.
