I set up this new site today. It’s my first step in publicizing myself as a writer. My wife recently gave birth to our first son (also David L. Day), and during the course of her pregnancy, as well as the three weeks I was off after the delivery, I came to realize something. I want my son to learn a lot of things about life, and one in particular is that he should never give up on pursing his dreams.
One of the things I’ve learned in life is that the best way to lead is by example. I realized that I had given up on pursing one of my dreams, one that is very important to me. Being a writer.
I’ve taken it back up. I don’t expect to become rich or famous, and I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to make a full time living out of it. But there is no reason, nor has there ever been a real reason, for me to not be a writer. I write, I love to write, and if I happen to be good enough, I’ll make money at it.
My son should have the confidence and persistence to follow through on his dreams, no matter where they may lead.
