Blogging Insights NF 48- Hopes and Dreams

A professional writer is an amateur who didn’t quit.” — Richard Bach
We’re asked to respond to the quote above.

Of course, I hope to learn how to better express myself by observing the wealth of talent in the blogosphere, but my only competition is with myself, and my staunchest critic is also me.
Bach’s quote compares two things which seem to relate to fame and fortune, or perhaps, it refers to aspiring to become notable and widely read. Those noble pursuits don’t speak for me.

My blog is a journal of my thoughts, opinions, and musings. I’m pleased when other bloggers offer their perspectives on, and connections to, my words yet my purpose is to capture a unique journal of me, and my hope is that my granddaughters one day find it interesting or (dare to dream) inspiring.
I secretly believe that all the clever bloggers who attach insightful and humorous comments, may be the BEST part of their discovery.

FYI- I wouldn’t turn down an ‘out of the blue’ lucrative publishing offer. I’m humble and content, not stupid. 😉


I love a well told story. If it makes me laugh, all the better.

  1. Susan, I too write/blog to increase my writing skills. It’s a challenge because right now I think my brain has been stolen. . . just saying, I simply can’t think.

    1. I hear you! I’ve taken long breaks in the past to regenerate and get my ‘center’ back.
      Those breaks made those writing ‘juices’ come back with beautiful results! Take heart… a break might do wonders for you. ❤

Tell me something good...
