"The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it."
Welcome! I am Catholic, conservative, and 100% pro-life. I'm Irish but also a lover of most things American. This blog is mostly just a place where I just collect photos and quotes that inspire me, but I also sometimes post about abortion and other topics I'm passionate about. If you want to contact me, I answer any questions I get if they're asked respectfully, or my email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for stopping by.
God-given dreams have to do with unselfishness and the serving and blessing of others. Dreams that are initiated out of our own imaginations tend to be primarily focused on ourselves and what we can ‘get.’
I wrote with a combination of exuberance and panic. As I scrawled the scenes on yellow legal pads, I promised myself I would never show the manuscript to anyone. That self-deception was the only way I could continue. It’s a stratagem I still recommend to young writers. Knock that critical parent off your shoulder! Write for your own eyes only. If you think about the public, any public you’re likely to be blocked.
If you are looking to get into a creative career:
Do exactly what you want to do and give it away for free. Over and over again. Do not wait for someone to give you permission to create what you want to create. Greenlight yourself and get to work.
You are still young, free.. Do yourself a favor. Before it’s too late, without thinking too much about it first, pack a pillow and a blanket and see as much of the world as you can. You will not regret it. One day it will be too late.
