OK I Lied, I Can't Stay Away

I always say I have to take a break to go do something else and I always come back here like a bad habit. My most recent excuse is... well that I can't stay away and I want to keep promoting this site. In order to promote it in other places,  like other website/blog directories, I really need to update it at least once a week. So here I am.

I've been thinking about some things lately. I was told by someone close to me that I'm not "ambitious enough."  I know what they meant. What they really meant is that if I really wanted something (ie. publishing a novel) I would be going after it with a lot more gusto and ambition. And it's true. I don't put everything else aside to submit short stories to literary journals, to edit my novel and to promote myself as a writer. Well I haven't promoted myself as a writer mainly because I haven't published anything except for my master's thesis and a recipe. Ha ha!

What I need to do is stop talking and just start doing. Ya! Enough is enough! Just Write It! That's my new motto.

So, what about you? Are you ambitious enough? What do you feel really passionate about? Passionate enough that you show ambition.
