Thursday Thoughts: Universal Spark

It’s that time of year. I know not everyone celebrates Christmas but we do so bear with me. When I was a kid, I always dreamed big leading up to Christmas. I didn’t want a pony, I wanted a horse. I also dreamed about what I would be when I grew up, where I would go, what I would do, who I would be. Those days are long ago and far away, since I’m older than dirt now. And trust me, it sucks to be old. 🙄 But I still have dreams, even though I’m living one of them–being a writer. I can’t imagine not writing. I look back on all the people living in my head–those whose stories I told and those who have yet to live on the page. See, those characters have dreams too. And the same things that make my dreams come true are the things that make their dreams come true.

There are only 3 things that can make your dreams come true, Silver: your thoughts, your words, and your actions.

Be the spark,
The Universe

They’re all you have, Silver, and they’re all you need.

The Universe is right–and write. It takes 3 things: thoughts (dreaming up the story), words (telling the story), and action (getting the story into the hands of readers). It’s that simple and that difficult. But it’s all I have and all I need and while there’s been a drought this year, I hope to have a bountiful harvest next year. I’m going to be that spark and make not only my dreams come true but all those of all my characters as well.
