OM, looking at the list of questions gives me a bittersweet feeling. The 30 Days Of Blogging Honesty And One Dare blog event is almost done! I feel relieved that I’m going along well but I’m also anxious because I will miss this! Oh well, I’m just glad I decided to participate after all. It is a terrific choice I hope to make next year, if there is another month long blog event from the lovely Mr. Baker!
Day 21 – The person or persons that do not read my blog but I wish he/she/they would is…
This is easy and I know my answer in a heartbeat: book publishers or book agents!
I really love, love to write and it is the only thing I see myself doing until the end of time. For some people, they keep a blog because it is cool or they want to think out loud but I keep a blog because I breathe writing. It is what keeps me going, plus I believe it is the only thing I think I’m good at! 😆
I rarely fantasize but when I do, I try to imagine myself as a well known author of books or maybe even a famous blogger, if the first is too much to ask. I wrote my first novel when I was in high school. Actually, I did two then, about coming of age. It may probably have sucked, but the point is, I still managed to come up with it. My friends and school mates loved it and I guess that is enough praise for me.
Early this year, I drafted another novel but I only got down to laying out all my ideas. I have not developed it or polished it yet. When I think about it, I get this giddy feeling because I have not written a novel in a long while. I imagine it to be along the lines of Summit books, very short modern chick lits.
My dream is to get published by Summit but I still need to develop the nerve to even submit a manuscript! I’m such a wuss, aren’t I? Just thinking about it drives me breathless. I think I’d die! This is the same feeling I got before I sent my Youngblood article (which eventually got published). I don’t know, maybe I’d find the strength to do it when I’m ready (that or I am just making cowardly excuses! :lol:)
