The Vision To Write

Futures Past

As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? How close or far are you from that vision?

When a young boy being in the Major Leagues was my dream. It was sometime about that time a seed was planted. I try to remember the moment; over the years I’ve been able to come up with several moments, but I wanted to write. And it was never with the goal of making a living at it, but rather writing for the love of it. Over the years I’ve written just for myself. In the early 90s a couple of short stories were published, but when the Internet and Al Gore came along, along with it the ability to publish your own work; I plied my vision.

At any rate, here is the link to my 4th episode of a short story entitled Class Reunion.

  1. I lived your dream (for a bit) with my son who got looked at by scouts and then was injured.
    I believe it is all in the dreams we have.
    Glad you are writing keep the ink flowing.

    • Thanks for sharing your thoughts and reading. As I grew older I came to realize that not being a major league baseball player was really a blessing. Perhaps the injury to your son may have been not such a bad thing. I hope it was not life altering, though.
