As we all return to our regular lives, after not winning the lottery, we need to remember to be thankful for what we have. I struggle with this one a lot. especially during long periods of writers block. For me the excitement of the lottery took place of my normal excitement about Award shows.
For the past couple of years I have started to realize something shocking: I am not the majority. one of my favorite in movies and television this year was Jupiter Ascending, Selfless, and of course Game of Thrones.
Of course I want to see Revenant, the Martian and Bridge of Spies, but I am just not as excited for the award shows like I have been in the past. In fact the last couple of years I have opted to have watch parties, (just me and my husband) for the Globes instead of Oscars. (it used to be the other way around.)
The point of all of this is just to say I have felt disconnected, and uninspired by Hollywood lately. The lottery has afforded me to dream again, to believe that my ideas and stories could rejuvenate the imagination and artistry back into Hollywood. Of course my plans of moving to California and becoming one of the great writers is once again delayed, but not over as I had previously thought.
The lottery just reminded me of my dreams. The book series that I want to share with the world, the stories that I have that will make the world look at fairytales in a new light other then the one the Disney corporation has been doing (fairytales can be so much more then this).
If you are still reading this, and I haven't lost you along the way. I want to remind you all that the first three books I have released on Kindle are all free starting today, and will continue being free until Monday the 18th. If I was a millionaire I would give my books away for free all the time, because reading is so important, for children and the younger generation.
I feel like they need more books, to lift their imaginations, to remind them to dream beyond their circumstances. It is why I started publishing my writing...so that my daughter can have stories and books that will help her imagination thrive and dream beyond what I can give her.
