To a writer, there’s nothing better than placing that period at the end of the final sentence in a poem, a story, a blog, or for those writers who are the most accomplished of all, in a book. Yes, this gives each of us quite a sense of achievement. It’s that feeling of completing your task, reaching your goal, crossing the finish line, and doing it to the best of our ability which keeps us going day after day, week after week, month after month, and year after year. It is knowing that we have done what we set out to do and it is something that no one can take away from us because it belongs to us completely. Oh, how I love that feeling! And it is because of these emotions and the fulfillment that writing gives us that we keep coming back for more. We are compelled to do so.
In this section, I have outlined my achievements in writing thus far. And though they may not be awesome or great, I am proud of them nonetheless because I have worked diligently on my craft and will continue to do so as the days pass. I will always strive to become a better writer, and I fully realize that even though I will work a lifetime, there will always be room for improvement.
One of my favorite quotes about writers is by Neil Gaiman: “This is how you do it: you sit down at the keyboard and you put one word after another until it’s done. It’s that easy, and that hard.” And that’s what I fully intend to do.
“Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.” – Robert F. Kennedy
I was interviewed by Marshal Zeringue on his blog Coffee with a Canine over at blogspot.com in April of 2015. It was such a pleasure to share my little toy poodle Lucy with Marshal and the rest of the world because I love her so dearly.
