So theoretically, as my readers, you might want to know what my ideal vision for the future is. So I'm going to tell you. I've actually drawn some pretty decent pictures of this in my diaries, but finding them would involve looking, which would involve effort. So I'm going to make a very messy version on Paint. Trust me, I'm awful at Paint. I'm decent at drawing in real life, but not on Paint.
So, to explain that little beauty. I'm guesstimating this as me being at about age thirty, but hey, who knows. First off, there is a poster for a movie from my book series on the wall. Because that's how famous I want my books to be. I love movies. Secondly, I'm there, typing another book. Yay! That means I've gotten to the point where I don't need my day job, which will probably be some kind of copy editing for a small firm or paper. That will be nice, too, but this picture shows that I've hit some awesome success. Also, that I'm still writing, and that I'm happy about it.
Then there's my family. I have a very nice cute husband, who obviously likes to take care of my kids for me while I write books. He likes kids. I don't have an ideal guy look, to be honest, but my standard when I draw this scene is brown-haired, tall, and blue-eyed. The main point is that he's really, really nice. And takes care of my kids. And loves me. And probably has a nice decent job too.
I have four children in this ideal world. I plan to adopt, but I'd like three boys and one girl. The girl is a redhead in this picture, and she's alone in girlishness, because that's family tradition. I can explain that if you'd like some time. The boys are just boys. Fun like that. One is a baby in that crib, which is a little hard to see. In theory, in the ideal, I was able to have that one baby boy myself, instead of adopting. But of course I love them all. A lot. Despite my apparent disinterest in this picture.
I'm writing, OK?? It's important.
We have a nice simple house, and it's all nice and simple. True story. I don't need lots of fancy stuff. That would just be annoying.
Otherwise, in this world of dreamingness but not pictured, I'd like to still be doing music stuff on the side, mostly something in a community orchestra. I also have a developing "bucket list", which I may tell you about someday, once it gets to be actually legitly long enough.
In news today, for those of you who have not liked me on Facebook (*puppy face*), you should know that I have scrapped THE PERFECTION GUILD. I realized I wasn't reflecting my best abilities and the kind of depth and meaning that I want to in my writing. I wasn't coming from the right place on it. So I'm leaving that to go back to editing and such for a while.
So that's that! Thanks for reading, and come back next time for a post on how my other interests collaborate with writing.
I'm an unpublished novelist, primarily of YA fantasy, and a freelance editor. I love psychology, cats, social justice, and love! I'm also a huge fangirl. More than anything, stories are my life.
