Rhiann Wynn-Nolet and Kristina Perez. I am honored to have been invited. I'll try to keep up every week, but things get crazy sometimes.
My current inspiration is dance.
I might even call it an obsession. Ever since I was a little girl, I wanted the common "little girl dream" to be a dancer. I didn't get to be in a dance class until I was 12 or so. All the other girls were younger than me in the class and it was only a 6 week class.
So, that was it for the rest of my junior and high school years for dance, aside from the abhorred square and ballroom dancing in gym class. I was, of course, the only person alive in the class who loved those sections of Phy Ed.
Then came college. I was planning to go for my degree in Marine Biology, then Biology, and then I thought, you know what? This is my only chance I will have to fulfill my dance dream. So, I majored in dance for a year. I don't want to say I failed miserably, but I couldn't keep up. I was devastated. I had to bow out after my second semester. I couldn't keep up with the dancers who had been dancing since they were 3, and my confidence just plummeted.
And, deep down inside I realized I was not a career dancer (or a biologist). I realized my inner core of creativity was writing.
post yesterday that I would rather be training for Dancing with the Stars™. I love all kinds of dance, but ballroom has become another passion. Right now, only my characters in my WIP could afford to take classes, but I am building up my willpower to hunt down a class that is right for me.
Have you had a dream that fizzled, but you still want to pursue? Do you believe in the mantra of it's never too late? Please feel welcome to join in on the conversation, or start one up! :D
