My blog is titled “A Leap of Faith,” simply because for me that is what this is.

I am extremely shy & terrified of failure… but just like everyone else, I have big dreams. — I have a passion for the written word, for every story told, & for getting lost in novels. Certainly not the easiest world to go out into… especially not for someone so afraid of failure that trying sometimes doesn’t seem worth it.

This blog is just one small step in the right direction! A way to push myself out into the world & stop being so afraid. — So here’s to writing about life, my writing journey, & everything in between. Oh, & of course, my leap of faith! πŸ™‚ -Heather.

    Hi Heather,
    I greatly admire your determination to reach for your dreams!
    I’ve been afraid of failure most of my life, as I’m sure many of us have, but we aren’t really living if we’re too afraid to take risks, are we? I wish you well on your journey πŸ™‚

    I’d thought I would leave a cool quote from Michael Jordan:

    “I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”

    Have a great day,
