This world can be so suffocating.

Do we seriously need to make money to be happy?

Do we really need get more in order to get ahead?

Can’t we just stop trying to fight for one moment?

I’m not created to be a cutthroat or something like that.

I just want to breathe and LIVE.

Some things are needed in order to survive.

Food, clothes, some kind of income, basic necessities.

I get it.

But this world says that’s not enough.

You have to get more…more…MORE!

Well you know what?

I don’t agree with the world.

Oh I will follow the “proper” path.

Get the good grades and achieve the degree.

Make sure that I don’t mess up all my “hard work”.

But when I’m done, I’m going to fly.

I might not be what this world would call “successful”.

I won’t try to go into the corporate business and become the “best of the best”.

I probably won’t even grow up to be the “ideal” of the nation’s dream.

But let me ask the world something.

What does it mean to be “ideal”?

What does it mean to be the “best of the best”?

Forget that.

I’m not going to fight to make the ideal “living”.

I’m going to fight to actually LIVE.

Forget the world’s ambition.

Forget the fog that tries to quell me down and join the “crowd”.

I’m going to LIVE.

And be a LIGHT.
I pick out a pretty strand from thin air.

Applying it to my loom, I work.

This piece must be beautiful.

I must do well with this.

Another strand is chosen from the pile.

I weave that into my design too.

No!

That’s not right!

I tear it out and try again.

My fingers start to bleed.

My mind begins to grow numb.

I have to get this right.

I can’t afford to mess this up.

My eyes are tearing up when I see my lumpy mass.

I want to tear this loom to shreds.

But then I remember why I began this.

Because there was love.

I wanted to create something to share with someone else.

Something that we could both enjoy.

I stare at the lumpy mess and pick apart the notes.

“Let’s try this again.” I mutter.

And so I weave again.

Guess what?! My e-book, "Cygnet" is now available for $2.99! This story is a romantic fantasy that features a maiden from a foggy mountain village named Lily and a Ravenhood prince named Noctis. This is not just their story, but the story of a princess and her other half and other characters who make strides in trying to find their own paths. I hope you guys enjoy the story! I wouldn't have been able to make this book a reality if it wasn't for the kick that my sister, Jami, gave me when she said "Stop making notes and just write it already!" and the support that was given to me by my parents and older brother, Jordan, who gave me the inspiration that I needed to keep going. Also, a special shout-out for my friend :icontotochan93:, who has gracefully helped me throughout the process as an editor and a great source for inspiration and ideas. Thank you very much and, again, I hope you enjoy the story!

Update: Here's my bookshop website that has more information about my book. Take a gander! my.bookbaby.com/book/cygnet
