Let's face it we're all dreamers. We wouldn't be writing if we weren't. Our writing aspirations are often private- shared only with family, friends, and blog mates. We don't let the "real" world know what it is that we're really up to- typing diligently during lunch or "cleaning up" when our kids are asleep.
A life time in the sport of figure skating taught me many important lessons. One of the most important being, goal setting. Now for the purpose of today's post, let's interchange the word goal for dreams. It is said that to become succesful it is important to actually write down what you're dreams are. The act of writing our dreams makes us accountable to them. And of course, our dreams will evolve as time passes, and thus will need to be updated.
So let's get started....Dream List Time....Just fill in the blanks.
Dream Agent: for me this would be someone quirky, fun, hard working, knowledgable, savy, and gets me.
Dream Publisher: a house with a strong YA department (I haven't actually picked out which one is my dream publisher yet)
Dream Cover: Simple, elegant, with a tad of flashiness to it
Dream Book Tour Itinerary: Start in New York (I have a ton of family there), then go to Baltimore (cause I have more fam there), and then North Carolina (that way Nicholas Sparks can show up and congratulate me and I can oogle over him), from there I'd like to hit Florida, then Atlanta (have a bunch of friends and fam there), then in Alabama I'll have to hit Huntsville (go to my highschool) and Birmingham... oh and then Chicago to see Oprah...you get the picture
Whew...that book tour tired me out. What are some things you would put on your dream list?
