I believe in writing down goals. So did Octavia E. Butler. Here were her early goals. Hint: Dream big & give back. pic.twitter.com/cobXWTbmNg

I love love love, seeing this. What confidence! I especially love the parts that Butler wrote about paying it forward.
Sometimes we can get afraid of dreaming too big, or hoping for too much, because let’s face it, rejections are plentiful if you’re a writer, but on the flipside, if you don’t dare to have big dreams, how can you ever get there? Sometimes we need to convince ourselves that these kinds of things are possible.
What kind of writer would you want to be if you had some success? Right now I’m just all hopes and wishes, but I’ll dare to dream. It’s somewhere to start.
