I've been an absentee Sunday Scribbler for a while, so I'm hoping to make up for that by posting EARLY. And by wishing Laini a HUGE amount of good luck and congratulations on her book and panel placement this weekend!
This week's prompt is fantasy. I'm going to use it to fantasize about my dream life as a writer, which was prompted by the pangs of jealousy I felt when reading about my friend Erin's wonderful writerly accomplishments. (Is it OK to admit that you're jealous of a friend? It's not that I wish her any ill will AT ALL or don't think she deserves her fabulous life. It's just that I want one of my own, too.)
In my fantasy writing life, I get to:
*publish short stories and essays frequently, and eventually get a book contract.
*teach creative writing in some way
*play a role in some sort of literary journal, even if it's just a college one.
*only take on a minimal amount of non-creative writing work to make extra money.
*get paid to teach at workshops in fabulous places, like Europe.
I think that's it. Is that too much to ask?? :) I don't even need to be famous. Just self-sustaining.
