Dreams motivate me to write. My first positive experience writing came in 4th grade after an assignment to write a 'greek myth' over a weekend. The following Monday the teacher read mine to the class. It was titled "Homer" a myth about a boy who needed to get a message to the God "Homer" who was positioned behind a huge wall that protected him. Gaurding the God were 9 men on a diamond-shaped battle-field. They young boy decided that the best way to get Homer the message was to write it on a rock and hit it over the wall to "Homer"!
And then, baseball was born! :)
It is a fond memory.
