A Writer & Her Adolescent Muse

Musings and Rambles of a Writer

Dreams and Reality

How realistic is it to dream big as a writer? What if you want to sell a million copies of your book or have a big-time producer interested in your script? In a world where there seems to be more writers than readers, how is this realistic?

What do you do? Should you give up on those dreams, or just dream smaller?

Everyone needs their dreams no matter how unrealistic they are. To shun them is like death to the artist within you; it would only invite misery and at times even chaos.

So, screw it. Go ahead, dream big or dream small. The game-changer? You need to act on those dreams. They won't happen by themselves. It takes work; lots of it. It won't be easy. The path to success won't be straight. The key to all is to never give up. It may take a year. Heck, it may even take ten years! Just keep plugging at it no matter what.

"Whatever you do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius and power and magic in it." - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

"You block your dream when you allow your fear to grow bigger than your faith." - Mary Manin Morrissey

"Life is never easy for those who dream." - Robert James Walker
