It's Not About Fame

Journal Entry: Sat Nov 3, 2012, 8:37 PM
These words within me,
singing just beneath my skin
are not just mine.
I'm going to unleash them 
upon the world
and make them yours.


Written for `Kneeling-Glory's 25th Birthday Contest

The task was to tell her, in exactly 25 words, what we hoped to accomplish by age 25. Or if, like me, you were already 25+, what we hoped to accomplish by age 50. (Those 50+ were encouraged to tell her what they hope to accomplish by age 75).

We were advised to tell her poetically, so I wrote a poem. I had very much wanted to achieve my dream of publication by age 25, (which is my current age, sadly), but I have no intention of giving up.

Happy Birthday `Kneeling-Glory! :party:

Thank you, and that's a good attitude; one day I hope the world can see my characters as well, but I don't think they're good enough yet!!

I managed to get published just this year from an opportunity that was listed on deviantART. I've read your work, including your novel. I have no doubt you'll be able to publish circles around me.

I'm cheering for you every step of the way :iconcheerplz:

Ooh, thank you so much! That's awesome that you got published! I tend to be slow and shy about sending stuff out. :bucktooth: But eventually I'll be ready.

Thank you very much :meow:

I know what you mean. It's really hard.

No pressure, but I await that day with eagerness. And so will your fans and followers beyond counting.

Good luck!
