Most of us have a picture of our “dream” future. Some people are lucky and things fall into place, more often though, we have to work hard and make sacrifices in order to have the life we want. There are so many inspirational stories where people have worked hard and made their dreams a reality. What is your dream and what are you willing to do to reach it?
Reflect, write and dream on the page! 🙂

“I am proud of what I write.”
“Let’s just say that if these scientists had been using their brilliance for good instead of evil, cars would run off water vapor and leave fresh compost behind them; no one would be hungry; no one would be ill; all buildings would be earthquake-, bomb-, and flood-proof; and the world’s entire economy would have collapsed and been replaced by one based on the value of chocolate. ” ~ James Patterson
As writers, we get to create characters and build little worlds for them to live in. Sometimes we are kind and other times we create a cruel, often unpredictable world to help add a dimension to our story. What if you could create your OWN world to live in? Would you create a perfect paradise or a world created with a balance of both good and bad? Describe it in detail.What would you do differently in your world? What would the currency be; money, time, kind deeds or like Mr. Patterson, my personal favorite chocolate? 😉 Get creative, reflect, write and most of all, have fun! 🙂
‘A writer and, I believe, generally all persons~ must think that whatever happens to him or her is a resource.’

Using your favorite historical figure whether, it’s a world leader, author, actress or revolutionary thinker, someone who has inspired you; write a story where you bring this person from their place in history to the present day. How does this person cope in modern times? Are they aware of the significance of the contributions they made? Are they as effective in the present as they were in the time they came from?
Get creative, reflect, write and most of all, have fun! 🙂
