Becoming An Author
Vincent Apunike is a writer that will become a published and recognized author someday. I am saying this out of faith and relentless hard work. I appreciate medium for this platform where I can express a desire like this and constantly feed that dream. In my other post, I talked about making something outta nothing. This article defines it on two counts. The act of creating content is making something interesting out of thin air. The other is a proclamation hinged on efforts and God's grace until realization. I have someone who impacted my life positively hold up her book smiling, pointing out the joy as a writer in touching a physical copy of your book.
I said it before what I write here mostly is structured like a journal. Today's entry is special because I will look back at this sometime in the future and be happy I did it. Every good thing takes effort, true across every industry. I will speak about mine which is writing. There are so many stories out there, so many heart-melting journies, so many reasons myself and any other person reading this shouldn’t give up on themselves. For instance, in publishing, some got it easy. But look closer you might find out some successful authors struggled to either get a publishing deal or create works they are proud of. I don’t want to go mentioning names although there is one I will mention. It’s quite different, but the story is very similar to the intent of today’s writeup.
The book is Audacity of Hope by your favorite, former President Barack Obama. I haven’t read his first or third full body of work, but I read the second. I read it after he became the 44th President of the United States. It was a different kind of book because he wrote it when he was still a senator. Lately, I realized that unconsciously I have been throwing around the word 'Hope.' Then I thought about it and remembered exactly where the power of that word came from. Then it reads in my mind again. 'The Audacity...' Faith, dreams, and hope are virtues that have to be backed up by serious efforts. I am not arguing that here. I am emphasizing the fact that my hopes (and yours) which translate as dreams, aspirations, and desires are valid. This is a standing fact. This is a foundational truth that I, you, we, whoever can decide to build on. Oh, I believed a long time ago and I have been working toward that. Today, I feel so amazing that I want to remind myself again that writer Vincent Apunike will be a successful published author.
If this comes across as a bit in your face, take the word ‘Becoming' and replace it with whatever verb that fits where you are right now with where you wanna be or what you want to achieve and complete your statement. This is mine and so shall it be by the help of God and the good I believe in.
