You Tell Me: What's Your Writing Dream

Okay, so a few of you have asked me about my winning blog post over at Nathan Bransford's blog a few weeks back.

So here it is in its entirety - enjoy:

You Tell Me: What's Your Writing Dream

You all have one right? The Best Sellers lists, literary acclaim, book tours, six-figure advances… or maybe your dream is smaller, like walking into the bookstore and seeing your novel on the shelf.

Me?

I have this dream. It’s summer time. I wake up at 6 a.m. and lie in bed for a few minutes. It doesn’t take long for my mind to wake up and the writing to start. Afraid the ideas will slip away, I get up and escape down the hall to the computer room. The house is quiet, and I can just write and write and write.

This is actually the dream that I get to live every day. I’m not published. I’ve never sold any of my work. But I’m blessed.

So what about you? What’s your writing dream?

I must say that lately that writing dream is more like 8 a.m. - and after a cup of coffee!

Oh, girl, I'm with you... well, you already know what happened to me the day that I tried to get up at 6 a.m. (per your dream!)... my butt is still sore from falling out of the hammock. ;-)
