Chasing Dreams

Ever since I can remember I wanted to write a book. I have this dream that I'm going to publish a book one day. I know it sounds kind of crazy, but somewhere deep down I truly believe it's going to come true. I can't tell if this is me living in some fantasy world, or if it's the work of something bigger pushing me. I try not to ignore feelings in my gut. And this "feeling" is stronger than ever. I feel like I'm on a mission right now. So this year I decided to chase after that dream. What do I have to lose?

I started taking a fiction writing 101 class last month, which inspired me to get moving. My excuse has always been my busyness, but I can make time. We can ALWAYS make time if we want to. Anyway, the writing of my book has begun. So far I'm on chapter 3. I have a loooong way to go. I plan on writing about 33 chapters or 330 pages. Yikes! My longest writing journey ever. I love the story line though. I can relate to it. "A 30-year-old searching for a husband for this $75k wedding she has won." No, I didn't win a $75k wedding, but I was in search of love and I felt like time was passing me by! When would my chance come?

This story is similar to my journey with some exaggerations. Maybe that's why it's easy to write. However, will other people think it's fun to read? I hope so. I guess my question to the world is...what makes a book good? What makes you want to pick it up and read it? There will be dating, suspense and real, authentic love. I think we all want to find that but we're not always sure where to find it or when it will come...or what it will even feel like. I was there before, but I never gave up hope. I genuinely believed I was going to find something awesome, and maybe would be 30, 40 or 50 before I found it. I didn't care. I knew I didn't want to settle. And just like that, Mr. Wonderful walked into my life. That's why I'm a firm believer in chasing dreams.

If I can find my dream love, why can't I chase after my other dreams? They do come true...
