On Life and Writing……

Since my last post I have had a bit of writer’s block (I kinda still do). I haven’t been able to really sit down and put any thoughts on paper. So, I think I’ll just list a few of the things I hope to accomplish with this blog in the future and in my life as a whole…so here goes:

1. Get my masters degree
2. Travel for a bit..I’ve always wanted to see the world and I’m tired of watching the Travel channel in order to do it.
3. Live in London.
4. Learn to speak a least two different languages (Spanish and French)
5. Finish my book (working on it)
6. Make a living doing what I love…writing. I truly believe in the Rumi quote “Let the beauty of what you love be what you do”.
7. Learn to be a lot more open with people (working on it)
8. Have kids…or…one ( I already have a name…judge me)
9. Make money blogging. Why not? It’s something I enjoy. Why not profit from something that you actually enjoy doing?
10. Try new things.

Those are just a few of things I would like to do. I hope that I get to accomplish most of those in the next year or so. Until I go, I’ll keep working toward my goals. Do you have a list of things you’d like to accomplish? What are they?

“Everyone has been made for some particular work, and the desire for that work has been put in every heart.”

  1. #3 is also a goal of mine. I’ve been there a few times and this summer I spent three weeks wandering around to get a sense of what it’s like to live there. Now I’m even more determined to make it my home at one point in my life.

    Good luck! 🙂

  2. Hi! I am new to the blogging world. I just created my blog last night actually. I was meandering about through others’ blogs when I cam across yours. I thought what you wrote was great! If anything, I wanted to give you a little bit of support in your goals. I too, am a writer and many of the things you listed are what I want for myself. Some of your goals could be “killed with one stone”. For example, have you thought about going to any residencies? That would be the perfect way to travel the world and best of all you would be supported because of your work, writing. Its just a thought. there are some great national ones and some great international ones. I have yet to go (i’m really just starting to get my feet wet in the realm of “professional” writing) however I have a mentor who has gone and urges me to go. So I am urging you to go. I hope that you get to reach your goals. Best & most creative wishes!
