I've been posting about hope, the future, and the value of dreams over at YA Outside the Lines.
been thinking about my own dreams and aspirations, too. Many of the
goals I set out to reach at the age of 20 or so, I have reached. Some of
those dreams turned out better than I expected; some worse. For many
writers like me, publication was a big, concrete goal. I'm glad I
reached it, but I find it's not an end in itself. The writing road
stretches out beyond it, and I've been thinking about where I want it to
take me. That's one reason I've been posting a little less here. I have
actually been writing a lot, but in an exploratory way that I'm not
ready to discuss yet, because I'm still figuring out certain things.
(How's that for vague?)
I'm also reading a lot. That's one ambition that has never changed: to read early (and late) and often!
