Are you Crazy Enough?

I saw this video the other day. It totally struck a chord with me. Left me thinking about us as authors. We work really hard at our craft, sometimes without any recognition. Yet, we continue weaving a story in hopes that it will be something people will enjoy! That it will be purchased.

This video is something I want to share with you in order to jump start your engines to Go Forward and Write. But write something that will change the world. Change the world in the sense that it makes someone laugh, cry, or want to be a better person. I'm not saying we have to all write self-help books (not that they're bad). Just write something that will leave a mark. Make people want to pick up another book. 

If you aren't a writer, then go forward and do those things that you enjoy. Change the world in that way, whatever it may be. 

"Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do."

Take your crazy ideas and change the world with them. Who is up to the challenge? I'm willing to start anew and work hard. Are you? Let's make this a collective effort to change the world one letter at a time.


  1. Thanks for sharing, Julia!!!!
