Shot through the Heart- Elisa Nader + Giveaway


Shot through the Heart: 7 Ways Following Your Dream is A Lot Like Falling in Love

Plus giveaway of ESCAPE FROM EDEN below

By Elisa Nader

A few years ago, I left my all-consuming corporate job to pursue my dream of writing novels. Somewhere, off in the distance, my dream hovered on the horizon like a beacon. There were days — weeks — when all I thought about was writing, plot, characters, setting. And other days I thought, “If this doesn’t happen for me, all is lost!” in the most dramatic fashion imaginable.

It made me think that pursuing a dream is a lot like falling in love.

1. At first, you get a little obsessed with your dream.

2. After a while, you become dependent on following your dream. Without your dream, you are nothing.

3. Jealousy takes over when other people achieve your dream.

4. Your dream becomes an addition. Without it, you’re nothing.

5. The horrific discovery that maybe your dream isn’t right for you.

6. But after hard work and dedication (and a little bit of groveling), your dream may just come true.

7. And when your dream is looking you in the eye, with all the promise of a beautiful future,  there’s no better feeling in the world.



Hi. I’m Elisa. I like cheese and reading and TV show marathons. Writing is scary, but not as scary as, say, Civil War amputations. I’m an Aquarius. Uh… let’s see… I’m not very good at writing my own biography. Or autobiography. I guess this is reading more like a slightly incoherent personal ad.
