Take a Leap of Faith – 100 word challenge #32

How many of us have a dream, a wish, a desire to do something but we’re held back by a lack of confidence, bad use of our time or we simply don’t think we’ll ever be able to accomplish that one thing so we don’t even take the first shaky step?

Well today is 29th February 2012 and it’s time for me to start.

I’m going to Take a Leap of Faith in myself and start writing the book I have dreamed of writing for two decades. It may well be rubbish but if I don’t try I’ll never know.

The above has been written for Julia’s 100 word Challenge which I have missed on joining in for months – here’s the last entry I made. The prompt is …Take a Leap of Faith… Have you got a dream that you’re too frightened to have a go at? Join me and say yes for once after all what’s the worst that can happen? For me, bad critique and a book that no one wants to read but at least I will have tried, surely I can pat myself on the back for that alone?

I’m also entering this into the Feb 29th.net to stand alongside millions of others who write from across the globe what they are doing on this special leap year day

    Good luck with the book.  I had the same dream, but just before Christmas I stopped dreaming and started writing. Added the last full stop to it a few days ago and felt a real sense of achievement, I’m sure you will too. Let us all know how you get on.

      It is a time thing for me too, but I’m determined to at least make a start and then push myself on from there :)

    How wonderful that 100WCGU has helped with the motivation to do this. I’m sure you will be successful but if you need a prod, a hug or just someone to read, you know where we are!!

      You’re right, if I stop worrying it won’t be any good and just do it at least I learn in the meantime, nice point to focus on
