Post NanoWrimo Blog

Hello All!

So I have been off the grid this month on the blog because I was doing NanoWrimo:) I met my goal of the 50K last night, and it felt amazing. This the third year in a row that I have done this amazing event, and the third time I have reached the goal. I will be working on playing reading catch up in the next month or so. I have finished a lot of great goals that I had set for myself this year, and have also not reached a few. I look back on the last 11 months, and on to the last month of 2014, and as a reader, a blogger, and a vlogger thinking to myself what can I do next? Well, I have decided that it is time to pursue the insanity of finding an agent.

Yes, you read this right. I am going to start looking for a literary agent in the new year. I am ready for the good, the bad and the rejections. I am an author who is proud of his work and I want to share it with a wider audience. I want to make a career out of writing. I know it is not easy, and I am not saying that I think it will happen right away because I know it will not. That being said, I owe it to myself to do what is right for me. I love my job and will keep working my usual job, but this has always been a passion of mine. I love creating new things, new stories and having fun dipping my quill into different genres. Having my favorites is great, but I need to remember that in order to be ready for anything, I have to try my hand at almost everything.

The new year is going to be full of new experiences, new things to explore, and possibly some heartbreaking moments. I will be pushing ahead, no matter what. If there is one thing I have learned over the last year or so, it is to go for what you want and say to hell with the negative thoughts and reactions of others. Go for what you want and give it your all.

I am making my decision now. I will go for it and keep going until I get what I want and I am determined to get it. Here is to not just going for it, but taking on all the craziness that is going to come with it!
