Sure, we all dream of the day we sell.
A couple of us have talked about the way we go into a bookstore and rearrange the books as if our book was there too.
I bet more than a few of us have scribbled our name across a piece of paper or two, fantasizing what it would be like to autograph our book. I guess Christi, and our guest blogger Liz, knows what that feels like. Awesome, I bet.
Wouldn't it be wonderful to know how Nora, Sandra or Tami feels walking into a RWA conference, turning every head in the room? Wouldn't it be something to know that people eagerly awaited your next release?
But beyond all that, what do you dream of accomplishing with your writing? We all know that unless you become one of the aforementioned girls, you're not going to make a mint at this job.
But what if you did? What if you did become the next Nora or Sandra? What would you do? As you all know, I had the good fortune to see Linda Howard and she told me that her writing accomplishments allow her to build houses.
Not my dream. But then, my husband is a custom builder...
My dream is to have my own cattle. All my life, I've wished for a cattle ranch of my own. I'm lucky enough to live on a farm with horses and my Aussies, but I long for cattle. Black Angus. Lots of them.
Sexy cowboys in boots and chaps....
Or, nearly as good, a few girlfriends who like nice horses, working dogs and a tall one at the end of the day, like my friend Kelley pictured here.
What do you dream of after you sell?
