Welcome to a Milestone at The Dragon
Or...this is post #600

Do you have any special goals as a writer or reader? Today's Inspirational Quote of the Day for Writers speaks to all of us with a goal in mind. I think I have several. I know I'm going to reach them, too, because I'm a driven, determined young lady. (I throw that "young" in there because I think 37 is young and I still randomly get carded at restaurants and liquor stores. And, let me tell you, that's a darn good feeling.)

But I digress. The point of this post is to encourage you to think about a goal you have as a writer...and to let you know that it's achievable if you put your mind to it and believe in yourself. How do I know this? I got a publisher to take on my fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods. That's no small feat! And I'm awed by the concept every day...

So welcome to Post #600 and thank you for stopping by. Enjoy the ideas, inspiration and guidance you find here!

My reaching my goal as a writer is writing on this blog to you and doing research mostly. I have written a couple of things but done nothing with them. Not even sure where to start. I wrote down an article on Guardian angels about when I wrecked my car and it was turned upside down and I felt the angel wings but I have no clue to start. So much going on after I had surgery, empty nest, cancer scare, I just don't know what to do.
Anyway glad to find you. God Bless.

Do you journal about it? My friend Jamieson has a blog (which may be a more public journal than you want at first) that's been turned into a memoir that's being published this summer. (Of course the process was much more complex than I've just made it sound, but that's the general concept.)

That seems like a fabulous starting point to me. Good luck!!!
