These are the ones on MY list, although I do consider myself to be a writer. I have since my mentor and friend Anne Walradt, pointed out that by definition, if I was putting words to paper, in any fashion, regardless of the results, that made me a writer. Thank you so much, Anne. That has been VERY liberating for me over the past 18 years.
1. Spend a weekend in Key West. Touch one of Hemmingway’s six-toed cats and drink a marguerita in salute to the sunset.
2. Publish a collection of short stories. And I do mean BE the publisher of exciting and well written short stories by me and my friends!
3. Get paid for what I write. This one is checked off, and helped me the most to convince OTHERS that I AM A WRITER!
4. Publish a full length novel. Notice, I didn’t say write a full length novel. I’ve got several written…
6. Need to hire an accountant to manage all my book-related income. Wouldn’t this be lots of fun?
7. Spend a week on an island writing a novel. I’m sure if I had one uninterrupted week, I’d finally prove that writing a book in a week IS possible.
8. Pay off the mortgage with my book-related profits.
9. Take an Alaska cruise, paid for by teaching writing classes on the cruise!
10. Make the New York Time Best-seller list! Of course, this is not for me, but for all the non-believers in the world.
