I have hopes and dreams of one day being a famous storyteller. Perhaps you do too? Are we fooling ourselves? Will we ever succeed? Why would our stories be more important and relevant than others? What dictates current success? When do you want your work to succeed, now or in a hundred years? Is this our feeble attempt at staying relevant to society? I am nothing outside of my own head, a simple small working bee, barely that. Yet in my dreams for the future I see everything from building an orphanage to building entire societies. I see all the fantastic people I will meet along the journey. I see success and happiness. I imagine how easily it will all come to fruition if I only put pen to paper. I have it all planned out. Yet realistically I have barely written half a book. Most of my ideas are still in my head. I have been spending more than a decade working on it. I have a ton of notes and framework. Realistically, when I am done, if I even get there, I will be rejected time and time again. I feel like my story is decent. I know my writing requires improvement. Realistically it will not at all go according to plan. I have dedicated a significant part of my life to this work, I hope to finish it in one way or another. Did I make the wrong move? Am I setting myself up for disappointment? Will this be the end of me? Would it matter in the grand scheme of things? Should I stop trying? How about you? What are your dreams and visions for your work? Where are you now? What do you think will happen realistically? How important is it to stay realistic? Who are you? What do you want?
