You should write a novel because you owe it to your dreams. You owe it to your younger self who still continues to imagine himself when signing books. As we all know, time is running out for all of us. It’s only a matter of time before we wait in our death bed with regrets of the past. As of the moment, you are creating history. You don’t want to look back and realize that you haven’t done anything in your life worth remembering. You don’t want to sit on your front porch admiring children for their youth. Don’t be like most people who only dream but don’t have the guts to turn it into action.
It’s perfectly normal to want to tell the whole world about your dream and your excitement to make it happen. It’s okay to tell people about your experiences and the hardships you had to overcome to reach this point. But always remember to work hard for yourself and not for the satisfaction of other people’s expectations. You must train yourself not to allow your self-esteem to be fully dependent on others. You don’t need to always show off you people to constantly praise you for your hard work.
