This picture explains so much, right?
Some time ago, I came across a social media post by a NY Times best-selling author. Her daughter had received an evaluation from her teacher with remarks about the girl’s tendency to daydream. She took a picture of the evaluation and posted it with her response!
The author-mother applauded her daughter, and pointed out that she (the author-mother) was also day-dreamer. Because she was a day-dreamer who had embraced her creativity, she became an author. Because she was a day-dreamer who embraced her creativity, became an author, worked hard, and chased her dreams, she became a best-selling author.
Not all of us do (or should) march to the beat of the same drum.
Sometimes (many times?), we day-dreamers have the greatest potential.
That being said, we day-dreamers do have to work hard to achieve our goals! So that’s all from me today…back to working hard and chasing my dreams!

I just finished a writing prompt for a class I’m taking: create a character with some stereotypical traits then have them witness an accident. It was interesting. I liked your meme!
Happy writing! On Monday evening I attended a 4-writer “Fantasy” panel the library hosted, and re-connected with a graduate student I knew when I was an academic counselor in Sociology/Criminology. UBER jealous, had no idea she was into creative writing back then (OH, the conversations we could have had!), and now she’s well-published in fantasy both as an adult and under pen name for her YA. Goal: for us to get together for coffee and “talk shop” and catch up.
