Wrote and Wrote all Week, Just not Here

I have spent this past week writing a ton!  I am exhausted but I just could not let a week go by without posting here.  I have to say it’s been a somber week filled with reflection and acceptance.  The economy is affecting all of us in some way and it’s on all our minds. 

My goal is to turn my love of writing into a sustainable lifestyle very soon, within the next 12 months or sooner.

What Is Your Passion? What Are You Doing About it?

This week I helped a client launch a new musical project he wrote 20 years ago out of pure passion.  It’s a musical adaptation of Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights.  When we first discussed the project earlier this year I had not read it or seen a movie version of it (there are several and another possibly coming soon.) But his passion for this project was unmistakable.  I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this journey and completely proud to be a part of it.  Check it out here.

It got me thinking about my own passion.  There are so many things I’ve always wanted to pursue and yet I always find an excuse to not follow through.  I am 40 now, so when exactly will these get done if I don’t just go for it?

Do you have something on your backburner that you’ve been dying to pursue?  In not now, when?
