In 2020 I’m answering a list of 52 journal questions. Read about it here.
Share a vivid dream
I’m sure this is supposed to mean a “deep in sleep” dream, but I want to share a different kind of vivid dream.
My dream is to be a published author. To have this as my career. It is something I have dreamt of for a long time.
I know it will happen. This isn’t some pie in the sky dream, but one so vivid, I am doing everything I can to make it happen. The thing is, to get it right, to have a manuscript that wows an agent, then an editor, you have to spend time on it. Agonise over every word. Trust me, I am.
I haven’t talked about my writing here for quite a long time. I didn’t feel I had anything worth saying. But my current manuscript is in the tail end of edits and will soon be heading off to my beta readers.
I promise you, within a few short months, I will start to query agents.
To that end, I am going to update here a little more often. I’ll keep radio silence while I continue to edit, so my next post about my writing will be when I have done all I can and am passing the next step in my journey to realising my dream to my beta readers.
To quote from one of my favourite movies: What’s your dream? Everybody’s got a dream.
