Last night at dinner, the topic of conversation turned to books, the book business in particular. As I sipped my dirty martini (divine!) and he threw back a Sam Adams, questions and ideas flew back and forth across the table.
For the first time, I really had the opportunity to explain the publishing industry, and to my surprise, he had a genuine interest in all that I said. Finally, when I paused to take a breath (and guzzle a bit more vodka), he leaned in. "You should write a book, babe."
It's always been a dream, one I assume most bloggers share. Something I've always hoped to do. Number one on the bucket list. However, it's always been a bit of a silent dream. Not one I'm willing to shout too loudly. But, hearing it out loud from another's lips made it seem more concrete.
Sometimes all it takes is a bit of encouragement; the wings of dreams don't work without a little wind underneath them. So, I encourage you to surround yourself with people who support you and the things you love. They just may be the ones to make them happen.
