June 10, 2012

In yesterday’s journal, I left in a defiant mood.  Phrases like ‘I want to’ and ‘I can’ and ‘I will’ is the last things I wrote, the last things I felt.  Today is no different.  No wait, that’s not true.  Today is different.  It is different because I received some positive reinforcement.  I had a conversation with two people at church, both who asked me about my writing.   We had a wonderful chat about technique, creativeness and making it all work.  And much to my delight, I was not laughed at.  Some people think that wanting to write a book is a lofty goal, but those people are thinking of the New York Times bestseller list.  But that is not a goal of mine.  Even getting published is not a goal.  It is a dream, no doubt.  But a goal?  No.  I write for my enjoyment.  And so, tonight I feel positive.  I don’t feel like writing, but I do feel good.  And who knows…as I’m lying in bed in a few short minutes, I may just pull out the iPad and start plunking some words into a document.  And from that exercise may just come something that makes sense.  Or at least may just look like a bunch of words.
