Lover not a Fighter

I'm sure you've heard of the phrase (or have heard it come out of someone's mouth before): "I'm a lover, not a fighter." Well, I used to be just that - or at least I thought I was. I have come to realize that I don't think I've ever really been much of lover. I've always been a fighter.

It took me a while to come to terms with this frame of mind. I have always classified myself as a lover aka, but then I realized that for most of my life, everything I have, I have always fought to earn it. Even in my darkest periods of life, I was fighting. I may have thought I was just letting life slip through and pass me by, but it was still a struggle. I was STILL struggling to make it. I'm not a lover and never will be. Life isn't fair. You have to dig deep and actively go after what you want. So, fight!

Now, I don't mean to go out and get into fights. Come on, use common sense. Don't sit back and let the thi…

Writing problems?

You would figure that you could just pick up a pen and paper or log on to your computer and the words would just flow. Everything would be perfect. You would become this excellent writer who wrote these awesome stories. Heh, yeah right!

Reality settles in and takes over. You realize that it's a lot harder than you thought it was to get into your own groove. Even if you have a million thoughts or ideas running through your head, it can be even more difficult to get them down on paper. Maybe you have a ton of ideas, but you aren't sure how to flesh out those ideas.

Grammar, grammar, grammar!! Don't be overly OCD about the grammar and spelling of your piece. I am guilty of this. I make mistakes and feel the need to fix them - immediately! However, I am trying to be more forgiving and just keep writing. I also try to not judge my blogs as harshly now. These blogs are my place to express myself, offer ideas, etc, without worrying so much about formatting or my grammar.

The Excitement is in the Air!

I haven't even received all of my final grades yet and graduation is next week. Yet, 3 AM is creeping up on me and I'm still typing away at my keyboard. I don't know where this energy came from. Suddenly, even though I will sleep after this post, it seems as though I could go on for hours like this without stopping. I am loving every minute of this. I feel rejuvenated and awake for the first time in a very long time.

I have some goals I have set. I waited, chomping at the bit, as the semester slowly crept by. It felt like it would never end. Finally though, I am free from school. Well, I am free for the moment. I do intend on returning for my Master's degree. I am thinking about going for my MBA. It seems like a logical decision.

However, in the interim, I have some very concrete goals designed specifically for my writing. They are goals for my blogs, fiction writing and a bunch of new projects I will be taking on. I am very excited and will share them with everyone tomo…
