I’m teaching four workshops at the Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference this week — each one themed to The Princess Bride movie. (That’s another blog post.)
One of the best things about attending a writers conference? You’re surrounded by people pursuing their dreams. The air is filled with expectancy and hope. Yes, I know there are times when those 15 minute appointments don’t go as planned. When an editor or agent says “no thanks” to your article or book idea.
But that obstacle doesn’t mean an end to your dream. It just means that particular meeting wasn’t your door marked “Enter.”
Keep dreaming. A “no” isn’t the final answer. Catch you’re breath. Remember why you started imagining your dream — whatever it is. And then dare to share that dream again.
In Your Words: What are you dreaming about? When you get discouraged, how do you keep your dream alive?
