Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!
December 4 question - Let's play a game. Imagine. Role-play. How would you describe your future writer self, your life and what it looks and feels like if you were living the dream? Or if you are already there, what does it look and feel like? Tell the rest of us. What would you change or improve?
If I was living the dream, I would have my own place again, and I wouldn't have to work at a regular job if I didn't want to. To be clear, I don't need to live the big giant dream like Stephen King or James Patterson. Honestly all that traveling to events and signing books and speaking in front of big crowds...I mean I'd do it, of course! But I'd be perfectly happy with the small size writer's dream if it allowed me one little house with a big library (for me), a big back yard (for Bruno), and no real financial worries. If I had that, my life would pretty much be stress free (I think...).
My perfect writer's life dream day would go something like this: Coffee on the porch, walks with Bruno, reading and lunch, and the afternoon for writing. I imagine never having to walk away from my writing unless I want to or it's planned. I imagine delving into research and getting lost down rabbit holes where I retrieve intriguing and fantastical ideas. I imagine my muse will always be with me because she'll be as happy as I am.
Of course, with a life as perfect as that, I would have no excuse not to get a lot more written...
What does your perfect dream life look like?
ps I will be traveling today so may not get to comments til later or possibly Thursday. Heading somewhere warm for a week :)
