Hey guys! As many of you know, my dream career is to be a professional writer. For many years, I’ve been writing different poems, stories, and articles and submitting them to various places in hopes to get published.
Now I admit, it’s been a struggle. I know that there have been plenty of famous writers for whom it’s taken years and years to become successful, but that doesn’t mean that it wouldn’t be nice to see my work published at an early age. Now, don’t get me wrong, I haven’t gotten any novels published or made any money for the one poem that I had published, but I have had articles published now on different sites and blogs. The feeling is amazing! I also just recently got an amazing writing opportunity and am quite happy about it!
Most of the places that have published my articles have not offered me money, but that’s okay. Would it be nice if all these places paid for writing? Of course! However, I don’t write for the money or even the fame, but rather to get my work out there, and in many cases, hopefully help others.
Ever since I started writing this blog, opportunities have been coming my way. I have written guest posts for other blogs, I have written for The Seeds 4 Life (Thank you so much, Matt!), Battle of Mind, Youshare Project, and The Mighty. All of these bloggers and blogs have allowed me to share my experiences and I thank each and every one of them so much! I am so honored to be given the opportunity to be a part of these sites.
While I had some friends come to me and ask me if I’d be interested in these opportunities, I also had to do a great deal of the work myself. I had to search for the sites, research them, and then of course, write for them. I couldn’t just hear about the opportunities, I had to seize them!
I’m happy that I took advantage of these opportunities. I’ve met some fabulous people and discovered some great blogs! I’ve found that I do have the ability to write well and help others through my writing. Also, I’m proud to say that I feel like I’m on the right track to success!
I wanted to write this post to remind all of you that you have the ability to succeed, to accomplish your goals. Things may not come all at once or even quickly, but if you keep working at it, success will happen! Please don’t give up on your positive dreams!
**A special thank you to everyone who has worked with me and supported me!
