Do you have any dream of writing your very own novel?

Writing a novel has been a pipe dream for me, but now I took the courage and began the first chapters of my novel. I'm learning as I'm writing. (I've still got a lot to learn but I'm willing to learn.) Hopefully, I'll be able to finish it by the end of this year. A gift to myself on December. To all those aspiring novelists out there, did you take that first decisive step? Good luck to all of you. Wish me luck too!

Wow! That's a big step to take and I'm glad you're taking them. I have a wish to write children's book, but I'm not talented. I'm still dreaming about it though. Maybe I should start with a collection of my articles first.

You write well don't say that you're not talented. I'm not either , but I have this zest and motivation to write - no matter! Don't give up on that dream. I would be glad should you continue aspiring to write. Yes, you could start with your collections but never give up dreaming .

Hi Jenaisle.. Good aspiration. Hope that it will become your wish full filing in shorter time. Just like you, i have the lingering wish of getting my writings in print.. the poems that i have written for these years.. though of late i have not many of these, but have a hand ful. It is my wish to see my writings in print..but then there are a lot of steps that needs to be carried out.. and the very thought of it, make me tiresome.. and so..i have left the wish of mine to get rusted and had been in the slithery state.. Take care Jenailse. Happy mylotting.

Oh yes. Many years ago my two cousins and I started writing a little bit. It was fun to get together and read what each of us wrote. It kind of fizzled out though, two of us had very young children, one was a teen and finally set it aside to get on with more exciting things. I threw mine away, now I could kick myself. I would like to read what I wrote back then just to see how it sounds now. Now that I'm older it seems I just don't have the imagination I had back then, I still think about it though. Good luck to you.

You should have kept those journals, you'll never know when the inspiration strikes. Thanks for commenting. Cheers.
