Right Place, Right Time
I'd be unbelievably wrong to say there isn't such a thing as the right place, right time -- luck ~ Charlize Theron
Are you always prepared to proclaim your dream journey to the world? I am now after messing up on Saturday afternoon. I attended another writing seminar on Saturday afternoon and the instructor asked me what my novel was about. I panicked because I'm really working on three novels right now, so of course all I was able to croak out was "historical."
Earlier in the seminar, the instructor said we should all consider ourselves writers. She explained that those of us who wanted to make a living from writing should be telling me people that is our occupation. So I had two things I was not prepared for, until now.
After Saturday's debacle, I vowed to never be in that position again. I am prepared to tell anyone who asks that I am a writer and that my current project is about social change in Edwardian England.
Are you prepared for your dream to take off in the right place and right time?
