The Truth

ImageThe Saddest Thing In Life Is Wasted Talent.

Those are the famous words from A Bronx Tale, one of my favorite movies. I still hear those words in my mind as clear now as I did back when I was a teenager and I have come back to these words as my motivation to stop bullshitting and work on my writing. I love to write but I have also deliberately thrown my writing on the back burner on simmer for so many years that at times I would forget that I even know how to write.

 

It’s one of my talents. It is home for me, and it has been out of my life for far too long.

Every time I think of this quote I’m brought back to the fact that I am not attempting to better my life by fulfilling the promise I made to myself when I was younger; to become a successful writer by any means necessary. And I know there are people who will discount my dream because they’ve wasted their own talent and become complacent with where they are in life.

Fuck ‘em.

I’m going to do this. I refuse to allow my talent to go to waste for another moment.
