Still Aspiring?

Aspire: to long, aim, or seek for.

Aspire is one of those words with an embedded escape clause.

“If I really suck at this, or if I just give up, it won’t matter because I’m only aspiring.”


Do you love to write? Does it speak to you?


Aspiring isn’t goal setting. It’s an escape hatch. It is scribble, scribble, blah, blah … What was I talking about?

If you want to write then write. If you want to become an author work your ass off at it. It’s hard and it will make you want to scream one second and cry the next. But writers write. It’s what we do. Don’t be afraid to put a label on it.

    • Thanks so much. 😉 It’s these little affirmations all writers need. Me included.

  4. My stairs the carpet is well worn so I keep slipping – I have installed a new handrail though so at least I have something to grab onto!
