I think today’s word is quite apropos given that this challenge ends in a mere three days. It is a chance for me to look back and say that even though I got sidetracked or behind at times, I can see myself dashing across that finish line. I can look back on how I allowed myself to use this wonderful medium to show my readers the human, creative side of Renee King….travel blogger.
I didn’t want to be viewed as one dimensional. I wanted people to get to know me better through my short stories, my poems, my opinions above and beyond the fact that I loved to board airplanes. I have always been shy and reserved and I have always found it difficult to be open in real life as I am with pen in hand. I think that I have come a long way and in some ways, I have bridged the distance between being painfully shy vs being an extrovert. It feels like progress; like I am on a clear path to realizing several goals that lay before me as a result of this challenge.
I’ve started writing that novel…the one that was born out of this process. I’m very excited about the possibilities…where all of this may lead. It’s a love story aimed at pre-teens….something sweet and innocent….a throwback to a time when romance trumped salaciousness. I’m making strides, I’m coming to the end of that finish line and I couldn’t be happier.
