I decided to write a "Dear Me" letter to help motivate me for 2018
I'm not sure how this is really going to help you, but I really need you to listen to me. You have been through so much in your life already. I do know that you have accomplished everything that you have set your mind to in the past. So 2017 wasn't your year for personal goals. But, I am so proud of you that you took a giant step in your passion for writing. You took that step and joined WDC, a site that has some really awesome people who look out for each other.
You set a goal for yourself to put out your pieces and see what would become of them. Man, I know that you were scared to death doing it. Putting a poem or two was all you were going to do. Heck girl, when you leaped for contests and wrote some short stories. I was like, what do you think you are doing, this is not just your decision! But, you held your own, I gotta give you that much. You totally surprised me when you won 1st place in Stormy's Halloween contest.
I was proud of you when you helped a dear friend with her auction.
That turned out pretty awesome. I know that it has been a difficult year for you, breaking out of your shell. Getting to know people has never been hard or for you to make friends. But, I know that with the challenges that you have now, it's been hard. I'm pretty proud of you for stepping out of your comfort zone.
Although you have disappeared on me for the last 3 months. You have totally gone silent on me and I need to know are you planning on returning? Because you have a lot of things left undone. I've even noticed that you don't even make appearances at home either. It's really becoming a habit, that I don't like. You know how OCD I am! You're exactly scaring me like your piece
Then you did your first short story and that was amazing, girl.
Wow, you really have it going, just have to polish things up here and there. Ask for some help and whatever happens, don't take it to heart. You know just like when you worked in retail management, you took criticism very well. Always took it as a lesson to learn and you always kept it positive. The same rule applies here, so go for it, spread your wings and fly.
So do you think you might come back and help me out, because really truly I've been pretty lonely without you around? I'd like to see us finish editing "Door's", and "The Great (Almost) Get Away." I'm sure that others can do some editing also. I would like to attend some writing classes with you around to bounce ideas off of. I know that you wanted to attend some of them and they will be starting soon.
I'd like to see you write some more short stories just like
Maybe do a sequel to it. It's already been suggested, so why not? You still have some more grand dog adventures to write. It's not like you don't have it all locked up in your head. Oh, wait you do and that's why I can't move forward without you. Please come back from wherever you are at. I need my right side of my brain ... lol, or is it the left? I forget! See what I mean, I'm lost without you. So go gather up your things, vacation is over, girlfriend.
The other side of Me~
