"Success means having the courage, the determination, and the will to become the person you believe you were meant to be” - George Sheehan

I read that quote on a friend's facebook page and was totally inspired. It really seemed to hit home with me because this week I am doing something that I've wanted to do for such a long time but just never had the guts to do it.

I am sending one of my stories (a children's book I wrote) to a publisher to see if they will accept my manuscript and allow me to actually BE a writer! Now I haven't been accepted (yet!), in fact, it's not even in the post, but just the actual act of getting the query letter done, doing a final 'once-over' on the story and printing everything on paper... that's just made my entire week... and it's only Monday!

So thank you George Sheehan for summing up my actions this week... I believe I am meant to be a writer in some way, shape or form and this week I am determined to at least TRY and be successful at it. I am throwing my whole "if you don't ever try then you don't really fail" theory out the window. I'm trying!

I hope you all are having inspired, healthy, successful weeks!

I keep my fingers crossed for you! Know exactly what you are talking about as since I was a child I wanted to become a writer. But it's a big step (inside your mind) from writing down and then get out into public. Sometimes it's so hard to believe in your dreams, but probably most of the writers had to fight this in the beginning. All the best to you and keep us updated.
