What I can do though...is write! Whether my writing has any merit is for others to judge, but one thing is for sure, I no longer care what others think about my work. Of course, I would love other people to enjoy what I do, but that is only half the process. What really matters to me is that I enjoy what I do, and I truly do.
Since discovering the power of The Secret and delving into other literature relating to self-discovery, my wife and I have embarked on a journey that is both exciting and fulfilling. I would strong urge anyone who is reading this to visit The Secret website at www.thesecret.tv and begin their own journey of self-discovery. It is the most rewarding time I have ever experienced. I have gone from drifting along, passing each day here pleasantly enough, but actually achieving very little, to being purpose driven and determined to finish those things that I have started, especially my writing.
It's the start of a new week and time to focus on my three main projects. I have actually begun three separate books over the past six months, two fiction and one non-fiction. My goal is to have one of these books published this year. Ultimately I intend to be producing a book every six to nine months.
I am well aware of the perils facing a writer, but you know what? I don't care. As the song says: "No regrets and no surrender". This is my dream and I intend to follow it with all the passion I have. To be able to travel this journey with someone is what makes it all worthwhile. I could not do this without the support of my beautiful wife of three years, Thess Leishman, and I also must acknowledge the help and unbiased advice of my writer son, Chris Leishman. Thank you guys, I'm going to achieve this.
Okay, off to work now!
