Reach For That Dream

    Eiddwenposted 5 years ago

    Today I had an email to let me know that my children's story book Bobby's Lost Voice  has been published!!!
    Since joining HubPages my life has changed so much;for years I have written but only for the children at home.
    I never ever thought that I would actually be a published author one day.
    My question today is:-
    What is your dream ???
    My advice is:- Never give up on it; hang on to that dream beacuse it will be yours one day !!
    Take care;
    Eddy.

      My motto, as far as publishing, has long been: "The sadness of stories untold."

      Stories are written to be shared. As long as people are well-informed about how they get published, then that fulfills my dream.

      If you are happy with your publishing solution, then I must congratulate you and wish you luck!

      Congratulations Eiddwen!  The written story is meant to be shared, and dreams that come true are meant to inspire... What wonderful news for you, and what a wonderful inspiration you are to the rest of us who are still dreaming!
      As for my dream.....I've had several in my life, some have come true, some are still out there, and right now I am lost in the in between, as you know this last year has been both rough and life altering, so right now I am regrouping and awaiting the inspiration for my next dream.

        Thanks a lot. I will let you know what happens. I am determined to make it. One thing is that I am happy because I have achieved something here at hubpages. I have published materials people are eager to read, that is an achievement.

          I can't agree more with you. I have gained so very much here in HubPages as a person and as a writer which without the publication would have meant so much on its own anyway.  Up and away we go!!!
          Take care.

    Congrats Eddy I'm truly happy for you. At least your dreams are coming true. I suppose right now my dream is to finally be able to write something so truly wonderful and great that everyone will love it and it will make me famous but that's more likely what we call a pipe dream. Actually I enjoy hubbing and writing articles in other places and blogging and for right now that's enough. Oh, yes and my very biggest dream is hopefully in the next 2 or 3 years time to have enough finances to return to the states. With the Lord's help we'll all achieve what we most want and dream about. God bless and let's keep on hubbing. Hope your book sells a million copies at least.

    Congratulations on being published and more importantly for following and realizing your dreams. I think we all have dreams but some are too afraid to follow them for fear of failure. So it's inspiring to hear of your story because it gives the rest of us hope and and perhaps the confidence we need to follow our own dreams. Thank you for sharing in your success. smile

    Joining HubPages is one of the best desicions I have ever made and my message again to everyone is never give up on that dream because if you believe you can achieve then you are half way there!!
    Whatever your dream reach for it and don't let go.
