Focus on the Goal

Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life, but define yourself. – Harvey Fierstien

Close your eyes (I know that you can’t read this with your eyes closed, but bear with me). Visualise what you really want from your life as a writer. It doesn’t have to be the usual stuff you say about why you want to be a writer. Focus on what you really want. Imagine your perfect life as a writer, the perfect situation. Where are you? What are you doing? What does it feel like to be there? The visualisation of that true goal begins the process that makes it happen. Explore your deepest desires, fantasies and motives, focus more and more on what you would like to happen in a perfect world, a perfect situation, taking away all restrictions and practical considerations. Forget about what you’ve been told is reasonable to expect in your situation, admit to yourself what you really want. Open your eyes, and write down what you saw. Your personal vision. Don’t share it with anyone, it’s a secret.

This is what ‘write to live’ means for you. And you weren’t given the ability to picture this, to want this, without being given the ability to make it true… you still have to write though!
