But even with all the education and the huge variety of jobs I held over the years, there was still that itch to write. Oh, I jotted down notes over the years. A story here, a chapter there, but I never really pursued it as I had other, more important things to do - like raising my family. But the dream was always there. Just out of sight, but never out of mind. Just waiting...
And now the dream has come true. With two books published and a third coming out in January, I have reached my dream.
So what do you do when your dream comes true?
You make it bigger.
That's the neat thing about dreams. There is no limit to what you can dream. No limit to what you can achieve or do in your dreams. And there is no limit to the number of dreams you can have.
So don't be afraid to dream. But remember...to make those dreams come true, you have to do some hard work. But it's worth it in the end. Trust me on that. :)

Thought for the day: “I write and write, and rewrite, and even if I retain only a single page from a full day’s work, it is a single page, and these pages add up. As a result, I have acquired the reputation over the years of being prolific when in fact I am measured against people who simply don’t work as hard or as long.” – Joyce Carol Oates
