When It’s Time to Revisit a Dream

Maybe you need to revisit a dream you once had for your life.

Do you? Is today the day?

Today, my literary agency reminded me that once, long ago, I wrote all these novels. Why not try again? Why not pitch to new, different markets? Why not reconsider. You can write nonfiction and fiction. You don’t have to choose. 

My sister says the same thing. Every few years, she’ll ask about this one novel and tell me to try again.

And I remember the words of poet Monique Duval:

“That’s the way it is with dreams. They scratch at your door. You see them through the peep hole: a stray dream looking for a home. You think it might go away if you ignore it. Wrong. It’s still there when you open the door, smiling. Wagging its tail.”

You think you can ignore your dream. You can’t! It’s there, wagging its tail.

What do you think? Maybe it’s time!
