I shared this on my writing blog and since I have so many followers on this site, I thought I’d share it here as well. It’s for my son, so I trust you’ll understand.
“I may have known it as a child, but it took years to develop, and build up enough hours of practice to begin to embrace the title of writer. And even still, there’s so much to learn. But, it all began when I took the diary that belonged to my older sister. I wrote my thoughts, desires, and wishes then. That led to years of writing. However, I didn’t receive guidance, training, and encouragement to embrace it as a career.
It doesn’t matter what didn’t happen, but what does happen now. I will continue to write out my thoughts, desires, wishes and dreams.
All this to say that I’d like to share someone else’s dream with you. I’ve known he was a musician since before he was born. How? Because he kicked in rhythm while I was pregnant with him. True story!
Anyway, my baby is now a full-grown young man who’s trying to live out his dream of being a full-time musician. He knows it’s a path that isn’t easy and he works hard to live out his dream. Click on this link and you’ll get a sampling of his band, Shortsweather . My son is the handsome one, in blue, playing the guitar. His band would like to take a tour coming this July. Will you help him live out his dream? Thanks for sharing this link as well.”
