When I was in 6th grade, I wrote my first real story. It was a horror story and I was so proud of it, though I can’t remember what it was about. But I was proud! I proud enough to walk over to my teacher and told her that I was going to be a writer, one day. She read it and raised one of her eyebrows. She told me that it was a good start and that I was very creative. This was the beginning of something special. She told me that it was full of run-ons, but that it could be turned into a master piece; and that no matter what I do, to chase my dreams. This is what started this crazy journey. I knew at that moment, that I wanted to be a writer, and I would do anything (in my power) to become one.

I never had anyone put me down for my writing. I remember when I was in 4th grade, we were supposed to write a story, but I couldn’t because my mother didn’t have a stable home for me to write in. I didn’t do the assignment, but the teacher wanted me to read it to the class. She wanted me to read it in front of a class, a story I never wrote! So what was I supposed to do, tell her I didn’t do the assignment? Heck no! I got up, walked to the front of the class and read my story about a vicious bear, tearing through a town of innocent families. I read for 10 minutes, flipping through the pages, until I finished. After the reading, she asked for the pages, I nervously handed them over and went back to my seat. She went on with the class, asking the next student to come forward and share. The bell rang 30 minutes later; I got up and walked to the door to go to lunch. But as I got to the front of the room, my teacher called my name. My chest was burning as I turned around. “Yes, mam?” She was holding my story up, revealing the empty pages. I began to shake, knowing that I failed the assignment. She told me that I should have been honest, but that I had a huge imagination, one that could make a good career one day. She gave me an A on the assignment for the creativity, since she couldn’t tell that I was reading an empty page.

Jump ahead to my senior year of high school. I have multiple WIPs; I have a solid blog and I’m getting more confident with my talents. A guy comments on my blog, telling me that I need to keep writing. I didn’t know that people could read my blog. I didn’t share it anywhere, so it through me off when I got such love. It felt great!  I also had a teacher behind me, pushing me to use my gifts, knowing I could be something.

Now I am a writer. I write daily. I have my days where I don’t want to write, or weeks where I feel I’m not a good enough writer, but I just remember the encouragement, from my past, and I get back to work, creating more content for you guys, knowing that the people in my past would be happy with where I am now! I never stopped following my dream to become a writer, so why would you give up on your dreams?

Stop telling yourself that you aren’t good enough. Stop grabbing your dream then letting it go because you think you don’t have enough grip on it. One day you will wake up and it will be too late to grab it, so grab it now! Don’t be worried about the outcome, but instead, make the outcome! Don’t stop chasing your dream because your legs are tired. Push through the hard times and grab that dang want. You want the dream to come true, don’t you? It’s all within your chest! You are the creator, so create the ending that you want. If you want to be a doctor, then become a doctor. You are the only one that is standing in your way. You can do this. I know you can.

The Good, The Great, and The Best.

       Welcome again! I hope you are having a great day. Today I want to talk to you guys about something that I mentioned in a few post. I haven’t talked much about the future of this blog or my writing career. I invite you to take a seat and listen up.
I started blogging almost 6 years ago. I was in a very rough part of my life. I needed a vent on a place that I felt safe. I remember pouring my heart out to you guys in my first hour study hall. I originally began posting to get over a girl, but I became more passionate each time I posted new content. I decided then that I was going to pursue this wild dream.
I spent a lot of Tuesdays on that blog, I can’t tell you how many hours were spent writing, editing, and posting those blogs.                   
          Then something horrible happened. It was finals week in school, and I had just received a brand new laptop for college, this is what I was using to blog on. When I got back from my finals, my laptop was gone. I was in the middle of also recording my third album, so when I got home from the finals I wanted to record the guitar part to one of the songs. I went into my “Studio,” but the laptop wasn’t there. I texted my dad right off the bat, but he didn’t have the computer. I realized it was stolen and called the cops. They showed up surprisingly fast.

       The cops said they were unable to do much for me, but they said they would put a tracker out for the computer. I was informed the next day that they couldn’t find anything since I never connected to the internet. My original story, that was about to be published, was now lost. My heart was relieved when I realized I had the story on a flash drive, but they stole that also. I decided to set out to rewrite the story.

      This isn’t about that story though.  This is about a great project coming up. This is about my next shot at getting signed as a writer. I am very excited to finally tell you guys about this!

       The project “The good, The Great, and The Best” will be a collage of all of my best work. This will include work from all of my previous blogs. I plan to go back and edit my old post with my new style, and hopefully it will help people will truly love my material. But getting all of the post together wont be easy. I will have to cover the ground of over 200 blog post and stories to pick twenty-one that I feel are my best work.

        Once I get all of my post chosen, edited, and printed. I will begin to send the file to companies all around. I intend to put myself out there for all different types of companies to see my work. This is my attempt on becoming a published writer. The excitement that I have is beyond comprehension. I would like to say thank you to all of my fans and family. Thank you for all of your support.
       
        Thank you. Thank you for taking time out of your busy day, and reading this. The fact that you are standing behind me makes me happy. I would like to say sorry for not being active these last few weeks. My life has been very busy, and I have found it hard to post daily. I wouldn’t want to post about just anything. My blog post take a while to edit, and most of the time I still don’t like the post after editing. The fact that I don’t like my own post usually ends with me trashing it at the end. I have spent a lot of the last few months working on my editing skills, I feel that my writing can now prosper from my new skills. This project will show you guys exactly what I have learned.

I (with great pleasure) cordially invite you to the project. I hope you enjoy!
