Dream a little dream
Since I was 12, I've harbored the dream to write a book.
Kev has always encouraged me to just do it, to just start.
But over the years, I have always felt too overwhelmed. I didn't know how I could possibly figure out what to say, how to organize it, how to publish it, etc.
In the last month, however, I just started writing. I would take five or ten minutes at a time and just go. It's like this story suddenly started bubbling over and I could no longer keep it in.
I still don't know how it's going to turn out or where to put everything or what exactly to include... but at least I'm working on it. And to keep myself from feeling too discouraged, I looked up the average word-count for a book, and realized I'm 1/5 of the way there. Still, at the rate I'm going I probably won't be done for years. The kids aren't exactly supportive of my desire to sit at the computer and write every day.
So that's what I've been up to. Researching and writing. It's exciting. And for the first time ever, it doesn't feel like something I can't do.
