So I turned 37 a couple of weeks ago, and forgot to mention it--I was too busy eating good Indian food and chocolate cake, taking a nap, and reading an incredibly interesting book all day. I was completely spoiled and appreciated, and I'm looking forward to my best year yet. (I always say that, and it always turns out to be true!)
Do you have any dreams you toss around in your mind? Any alter-egos you wonder about? Every once in a while I imagine myself as a full-time writer.
I love my homeschooling mama life, don't get me wrong, but every once in a while I like to daydream about working in snippets longer than 15 minutes. I don't actually think I'd enjoy the life of a full-time writer long-term--I need to be doing plenty of living so that I have something worthwhile to write about, after all!
But thanks to a generous mother-in-law and a hardworking husband, I get to indulge that dream for just a few days. Book writing and conference preparing will be my main focus during this time, so I thought blogging in a bit of a different style might be best.
“If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet,
then you must write it.”
