I am a 45 year old man that has dreamed of being a writer his whole life, but did everything he could to avoid it. I have rid myself (or 'lost' if you will) all unnecessaries, and I live so simply now that I actually think I might be able to do this. Now if I could muster a half an ounce of self-discipline, and lose a half ton of self-loathing something could possibly happen. I have a pair of 2 year old nieces that I really want to impress, and I think it would be so amazing to have a story or 2 for them to read when they get old enough. I wouldn't mind impressing a lady or 2 as well. Most of all I'd like to finally impress myself, and accomplish something I think is worthwhile.
