Dare to Dream

With this writing prompt, I feel like I can talk about almost anything from the dreams I have at night whenever I’m asleep to my dreams in a career. And while I would like nothing more than to talk about both of these, I think I will focus this writing prompt on talking about my dreams in a career, whenever I get one.

I want to write. I want to write for an audience of people who will enjoy my work and write in a way that inspires others to want to write.

I want to write because I enjoy writing. The only problem is that I don’t know yet where I want to work and what with writing I want to do.

I know I want to one day publish a novel of my own. To write a story so amazing and empowering that others would want to talk about it with those they love. To write a story with amazing characters, people we could all relate to in some way or another. To write real characters, people you can easily get emotionally attached to if something were to happen to them.

I don’t know where I want to work because I feel like that is so limiting. There are many possible places I could end up working at that narrowing my options down sounds boring.

I know I want to write. I love writing so much that I know having my own work published would be a dream come true for me. It would be everything I work hard for and then some. But where I want my work published and in what format is still a complete mystery to me.

I know I enjoy blogging. Ever since I’ve created my blog, I realized how much I enjoy blogging, writing to my own audience in a format I myself can create. Communicating with people who enjoy writing as much as I do and have their own interesting stories to tell. I feel like blogging has become a part of my life these past couple months and I enjoy every minute I get to post a story to my blog.

I would love very much to pursue blogging as a career, but have no means on how to get started. I know the first direction I need to take is a course on web design so I can get a better understanding of how html formatting and all of the other stuff that comes with it works. But other than that, I’m at a loss of where to go.

But I can see blogging becoming an even bigger part of my life. Because blogging allows me control over my writing and allows me to decide what I want to publish whenever I want to publish it. And I enjoy doing it so much now that I can’t imagine myself not doing it anymore.

But I know it’s not everything I dream about for my career either. I know blogging is something I can do so I can keep myself writing, honing and sharpening my skills. But I need to figure out what else I want to do with writing.

I know my love of writing is all I need to find the career that encompasses my dreams.
