I is for Ignite

What do I mean ignite? It could be to ignite a fuse that will lead to some sort of explosion, but to mean, ignite is just the medicine for passion. Something has to ignite to make you want to do something, that particular moment that you decided you want to do something. I mean, my passion for writing was ignited at the end of high school when I decided to write my first story for my sister. If it wasn't from her pleasure and saying it was the best thing she's ever read (she was a bit bias... and the main character was based off her, just with magic powers) I don't know where I would be.

Whatever you do, whatever your passion is, there is always that one moment in time that ignited it. Whether there's going to be some big explosion or if it's going to fizzle out in the end, well that's just up to how determined and focused you are. I'm hoping mine will end with some massive explosion. I'm not going to give up until I reach my goals, so my fuse might be a very long one.

Tips for a long ignition:
  1. Rejection only makes you stronger... if you continue to work to improve.
  2. Determination is key.
  3. Find something or someone to work for.
  4. Decide what you're working for... what goal is it that you want?

Have you ignited something in your life?

Great post and I love your tips, Cheree, especially the part about rejections. They have been the driving force in helping me improve my writing (especially when an agent hints at what the problem is). :)

Very good advice, I especially love your last tip. 'Don't Give up'. I don't intend too, writing is a passion which needs to be satiated!!

Have a lovely week!
