Well, not quite yet, but I’m guessing working like a working-very-hard-person in 2009 will pay off at some point, in terms of reaching my goals, if not cash (have I mentioned, writing doesn’t pay too well?).
Which brings me to my goals. I started my adult life with two goals, neither of which I thought would ever bear fruit.
One was to be a writer. The other was to be a rock star.
In some ways I’ve achieved them both, although I spent most of my teenage years and twenties lamenting that I hadn’t come anywhere near it. I’ve written a book, and it’s being published. I’ve played in a couple of much-loved local bands, so you could say I’ve had at least a micro-taste of what it feels like to be a rock star.
This book has given me so much more than ticking an item off a list. I’m starting to think of myself as a writer. Finding myself looking for more opportunities to write, and thinking about my next big project, I’m plotting how to make this a full-time gig. I can put in the hours. I could really do this.
Cool promo ad: Paul from Ford Street Publishing has sent us this cool black and white ad for f2m:the boy within which will appear in future books. Thanks!
