So, I'm a Goober

Today I'm a goober writer for Goober Writer's Anonymous over at Emily's Playhouse.

Who am I kidding? I'm a goober writer every day. Sometimes just a plain ol' goober. I make mistakes. I doubt myself. I feel like an idiot for pursuing a dream instead of being content with 'the day job.' I have some days when I'm excited about what I'm working on, then some days when it feels futile. Time consuming. I have this fear that twenty years from now I'll still be unpublished, and I'll look back at my life and regret I wasn't living it as I could have been.

But that's the risk we're all taking together, isn't it?

I hope everyone has a fabulous Thursday.

hi miss christi! wow you sound just like a for real human being. taking that risk is cool. just think in that 20 years if you didnt you could be thinking wow i wish i followed my dream. you just gotta believe in you and follow what your heart says.
...hugs from lenny

Hey Christi, I feel you. Sometimes it's easy to doubt the writer's life because you spend so much time in a vacuum, but honestly I couldn't think of any other way I'd like to live. It's like getting to live everything not just through your own eyes, but through anyone's eyes you'd like, over and over again. Never give up! :)

Goober says hey!

Although I've heard your story before, it's always good to be reminded that, well, I'm not the only Goober wandering lost through the literary landscape. ;)

Here's to both of us finding our way sometime soon.

Okay, I don't know if that posted or not. :P But I was saying it's all about enjoying the journey anyway, or it isn't worth doing.

I'll go with what Lenny said! There have been so many things I wanted to do and was afraid to try them or convinced I'd fail and just opted to not try, again.

I don't want to be that person anymore. Even if I never 'make it' I will have at least tried. And my friends will have read my works, too. They promised!
