i think i will need to take time, space and energies off from blogging here for a while; i will need the time, space and energies for making a dream come true.
there's this national writing grant with an october 31 deadline that i want to prepare for; i need to write at least three very good children's stories to qualify. winning that national writer's prize would mean that i get to take time off for a year from my day job and stay at home instead just writing twelve more stories! it would pay me a little more than the equivalent of my day job's salary, too; so i would have no reason not to take a leave off work for a while.
i've started writing down notes for the first story; im beginning my descent into my inner well. i need to collect all my energies and focus around me, gather my cloak up and hide for a while (now i know why Dracula does that action every time before he goes and disappears! : ) heehee...)
wish me focus, wish me out-of-this world creative and universal inspiration, wish me stories that would touch people's lives.
the luck will just follow.
