What if…I’m fooling myself?

God, am I an idiot or what? I’m 56years of age and giving up hours every night to study online creative writing courses. Isn’t this the time when we baby-boomers are supposed to be living on easy street and relaxing? But, ever since I was in the womb, I’d been a rebel with a cause. Afterall, Bryce Courtney didn’t start his writing career until he was about 56, so damn it, so could I.

Having never been adverse to hard work, I reaffirmed my decision. Yes, a published author for me! I was not fooling myself. I had another 30 good years left in me. I can do this! So for the next year or more, I spent every minute (when I wasn’t engaged in my money-earning capacity i.e. my ordinary work life), reading, writing, learning and submitting assignments.
And you know what? My brain, which had previously been getting a little fuzzy and forgetful around the edges, kicked back in with vengeance. With renewed spirit and intelligence, I began to feel more alive than I’d felt for some time. I was on track. Published author, here I come.
When was the last time you stuck at something no matter what?

  1. I’ve been browsing on-line more than 3 hours as of late, but I by no means
    discovered any interesting article like yours. It is lovely price sufficient
    for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made excellent content material as you probably did,
    the web shall be a lot more useful than ever before.

    1. Thank you so very much for your kind words. It is always delightful to receive feedback. I hope you will join me more often. Best wishes.
