Nothing Lasts Forever

The thing about life that I am learning is that nothing lasts forever.

Writer's Life

Dream Big Or Don’t Dream At All.

I think this is the most confident I have ever felt about my writing. I currently have 8,000 words of my first novel drafted, it doesn't sound a lot compared to the 80,000 word mark I am hoping to achieve but for me it is a big accomplishment.
