Years ago I had some amazing opportunities come my way. Unfortunately I was too busy to even notice them. I was going to School and working two to three jobs to pay my way through. I thought that it was so important to finish college as fast as possible; I did not consider that I would be loosing out on some amazing experiences because I was in too much of a hurry.
Now seven years later; one of those opportunities has reappeared. Perhaps all those years ago I would not have appreciated the experience nearly as much as I will now that I am pursuing my writing career. Then again maybe that is just something that I have to tell myself since I could have completely missed out on a great experience.
So I get to mark one more thing off of my bucket list; and have an experience I should have slowed down and enjoyed years ago; on November 1st.
It might not live up to everything that I hope; or it could live up to everything I have imagined it will be. Either way it is the perfect way to start November. It might even be the inspiration I need to propel me through NaNoWriMo. No matter what happens; I feel like things might finally start moving in the right direction for me as a writer.
I like this image; and it does not really captivate what I have written; yet in a way it does. The look on her face and the letter in her hand makes me feel as if she too regretted a choice that she had made; but she never got to go back, she never got a second chance.
I feel like this is my second chance. Perhaps now that I am older and have more experience that this will mean more then it would have all those years ago. Needless to say November is going to be my month. I will enjoy this day; perhaps even get more inspiration for my own stories. Then I will begin my journey into my novel. As well as finalizing everything for the release of Polarbe's Hibernation. If you do not hear much from me this month; it is only because I have disappeared within my novel.... see you all on the other side. - K A Petentler
