Just my thoughts...

Dear Diary,
So it's the first day of July and I thought it would be a good day to write another entry in my diary. Well actually by the time this posts it will be July 2nd but who cares right? Lol....
I've just been thinking about alot of things in my life since last week and I thought I would share them with you...I've been thinking alot about life and how precious it is. I am more determined now than ever to make my mark in this world and make a difference. I'm not even concerned about fame and fortune I just want to make a difference in someone's life...I have been through so much and I have a story to tell and I cannot wait for the world to hear what's been inside my heart for so long.
For so long I've been waiting to find out what it is i want to do in life and I know one of those things is writing. Writing is definitely a passion for me and it's what truly makes me happy. I am not even concerned about writing a certain way just to gain readership and make money...I just desire to tell stories that are from the heart and let it flow....
I know my time is coming and I have to encourage myself sometimes because there is no one who is pushing behind you telling you to go on. It's just something that you have to do regardless who's around. I lnow when I hit the Essence Best Seller's list, and eventually The New York Times that there will be droves of people standing aound saying that they were with me from the beginning but I know who was really there supporting me and telling me to keep going...I know who is true and who is real in my life and those are the people that I will always keep close to me because they weren't concerned about anything else but being my support system. I know I have alot of dreams and it seems like I want alot of things but I've always been the one to aim high...I feel it makes me hustle even harder and that's my philosopy of life...hustle hard...sleep later...:)

Until next time,
Jessica aka Lyric

The New York Times bestseller list is the point where I think all writers strive for. Good luck, and keep those real and true close to you.

They are the ones who matter the most.

Hey girl, just stumbled across your blog & catching up on your journey. Good luck in everything! and you're right, it is a process. I started my first novel in 9th grade, life got in the way, then got back to my writing about 9 years with freelancing & contributing articles. About 3 years ago I started on my 2nd novel and finally completed it. I'm in the rewriting phase but still like you said, it's a journey.
