I’m guessing you noticed the title of today’s post: “There’s a first time for everything…” Well, this will be my first time to put my writing, other than my blog postings and such, out for public viewing.
Today, I am sharing with you the PROLOGUE of my WIP, A Momentary Glance. Only a few close family members and friends actually. BUT because you all have been so supportive of me, I thought I would give you this little snippet. It’s very short, but it gives you an idea of what my novel is about.
If you like it, please let me know! (Or if you don’t, that’s okay too!) Depending, I MAY just have to share another, longer snippet with you all. :)
I had always dreamed of doing something big with my life—making my mark. It was never about money or fame. It was about my passion. My passion for change and a better life. My passion to see the world and meet amazing people. What I’m trying to say, I suppose, is my passion, my dream is to act. As crazy as it may sound coming from someone as shy as me, it’s what I’ve always wanted to do. I want to be someone little girls can look up to, someone that can make a real difference in this crazy world that we live in. Being an actor, or any celebrity for that matter, you have the opportunity to influence…in a good way. I want to be that influence. That’s why I decided to take that first step—creating a portfolio. Thanks to a friend, I had some decent headshots and I’m relatively good with words; so my lack of experience will, hopefully, not be an issue. After submitting my work of art, as I prefer to call it, to several agencies, all I had left to do was wait.
Well, I’ve been waiting for TWO MONTHS. Two excruciating months! By this time, living in small town Linford Falls, everyone knew what I was trying to pursue. Maybe they’re right. Maybe this dream is unreachable. They tried to warn me. All of them, including my mom. A small town girl from South Carolina won’t make it far. I didn’t want to believe them, not a word, but what if they’re right? What if I never get my chance? What if my dreams never come true? Am I stuck living here? Forever in a small town?
Feel free to share your thoughts! I would love and appreciate your comments. :)
Until next time………………………………………………love & blessings!!!
