Just Go For It: But Do It With A Map


I’m working on a couple of things today. 

One is a reading assignment given to me by a good friend and fellow writer, S.C. McCole. You can follow him on Twitter @SCMcMcole

It’s a book called The Writer’s Journey by Christopher Vogler. 

You can visit his blog Here.

Or via WordPress Here

I am also writing an author interview I’ve done with another good friend and fellow writer, Majida Rashid. You can follow her on her WordPress site Here.

All of this segues into my ultimate goal, to become a paid and published author.

I have to learn the rules of the game before I can hit this thing out of the park, so I’m taking my time and getting it right. 

I’m remaining teachable. I’m humbling myself so I can not only learn, but be fearless on this journey. 


I have dreams. But how do we achieve a dream? 

We must set goals. And goals must have deadlines, measurable outcomes, so we can mark our progress instead of seeking instant gratification and perfection.

This is how we map out our destination, whether it’s to go to college, get a job, write a book, start a business, or start a family. Everything requires learning the steps and following direction by those who are wise. 

What are you doing now that will get you a step closer to your dreams? 

Share your strategies and inspirational stories, I would love to hear from you.

  1. Kim, this statement—
    “I’m remaining teachable. I’m humbling myself so I can not only learn, but be fearless on this journey.” —is badass! How powerful is that. I admire you. That’s a path to great things.

    Probably won’t be surprised when I say that I follow that same philosophy. I try to learn something new about writing and myself as a writer every day. It’s certainly not the easiest path, not by a mile, but it is the most rewarding.

    I hope you enjoy Vogler. Can’t wait to discuss. Exciting!
