Last month I was fortunate enough to connect with Sydney Scrogham on Twitter. She reached out to the Twitterverse with a simple statement: "Looking for some writers to interview..."
I figured, I'm a writer, why not me? So I responded to her tweet, and a month later - and LOTS of big news - my interview has made it to her blog. I want to thank Sydney for taking the time to interview me and listen to my dreams... which are finally coming true!
Read below for some snippets of my interview. Or read the whole interview here.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
I loved to draw growing up, everything from realism to abstract. So naturally I thought I wanted to be an artist. That didn’t happen, I guess now the artist in me has manifested itself through words.
Did you ever give up on your dreams?
Never! I may not have seen them through just altered them to be more realistic and possibly with greater reward.
What advice do you have for people who are trying to decide if they should chase their dreams?
I would say be true to yourself. Nothing in this world is unattainable if you work hard. You appreciate your rewards in life so much more if you earn them. Self entitlement is a cop out. Be proud of who you are and never apologize for what you want in life.
With love, and big JB hugs. xo
