Not Letting Go Of My Dreams So Easily/Am I Still Writing Books?
For the past few months, everything has not been rainbows and unicorns for me. Which is why I haven't been able to release blog posts as much as I want to (but I am definitely trying to be more consistent with writing here).
When I have a dream and a goal, it is too hard for me to let it go so easily. So here is one update that I have been thinking about for a long time.
For those who have followed my old blog, I wanted to move to New York City by this year. Unfortunately, things didn't work out like I wanted them to... so I moved to Chicao instead. After thinking long and hard about this decision, I have come to the conclusion that...
I just have to try again. I am looking to pick up a 2nd restaurant job and practically working 20 hours a day in order to save up enough money to move to NYC by 2014/2015! Crazy right? I love it here in Chicago and have nothing bad to say about it... I just have a feeling that when my heart and mind are on the same page, that I should listen to them. Moving (and living) in NYC has always been my dream since a kid, so, I must do whatever it takes to make that dream happen. Now, if I am not able to move to NYC this time, I will be completely okay with it. I am the type of person who has to do things twice before even giving the thought "okay maybe it's just not meant to work" and will continue to live in Chicago or whatever destiny has prepared for me.
So there it goes. The biggest breaking news in my life so far... my plans on moving to NYC by 2014/2015.
In other news.. It has been a while since I have addressed this question... am I still writing the books that I said I would?
"To write gives me a way to tell/create stories with words on a blank canvas of pages. Taking photos gives me a way to display the images in my head using a camera. To put the two together, as an over-thinker, I began to think even more."
I am always writing. Even if it is not with a pen on paper, in my mind, I am always writing something. Thinking of how the paragraphs, metaphors, sentences and poetry will fit together with my photography. I have changed a few titles and other content here and there with all of the books I am currently writing right now.
The current status of everything is 95% set in stone. The titles and the content. While I sacrificed one of my 2 off days this week (which 1 would have been used to strictly write) I will have to wait until Friday to update you all on the new titles of my books and when I plan to release them.
Hint for those who may not know, here are the genres of books I am writing right now.
Fantasy Romance Novel
Children/Coffee Table Books
I thank you all so much for bearing with me as I have been silent from writing these past few months. If everything works as planned, then I will be able to write and share a ton more information/updates with you all.
Oh and I also have a new photography website (http://www.kenonthompsonphotography.com). If you would like for me to shoot your event, portraits/senior portraits etc (currently working in Chicago, but willing to travel with further discussion) please feel free to e-mail me at email@example.com as I work out the kinks for my photography e-mail address.
Dreams & Coffee Beans,
