The Writing Dream

Writing a novel is a popular subplot in this year’s holiday movies on television. Three movies playing this past week as I wrapped presents and baked holiday treats had main characters with dreams of writing a book.

Perhaps the dream of writing is more widespread than I imagined. I’m exposed to groups of writers and aspiring writers in my local and online writers organizations. I myself had not considered writing until 2 ½ years ago. Since then, I’ve completed and indie-published a mystery novel and a children’s picture book.

My writing dream goal for next year is to create a better book by studying the craft. I signed up for online classes in 2020 to improve my writing, revising, and editing skills.

Writing takes time and commitment, but it’s a rewarding hobby. I expect it’s even more rewarding to see your books lining bookstore and library shelves. Perhaps some year I might find out.

Happy holidays!
