I guess most writers have becoming a bestselling author or having one of their novels made into a movie. Those interviews on the morning 'news' shows would be great stuff when our publisher flies us to New York. Ahh, dreams.
But besides those biggies I have some things on my writer's wish list I intend to make happen. One of these days, maybe even next year, I'm going to attend BEA and grab up lots of goodies and meet some of my favorite authors. I've heard you can get lots of freebies, T-shirts, pens, candy, totes and BOOKS! I'm going to do it.
I'm going to attend one of the big 'cons' like the recent ComicCon. I think all my children would love to go along to one of those. That wish is a little further in the future but I'm still going to do it.
Not next year but perhaps the year after, I want to go on a writer's retreat. I'm not sure where or when, but I do know what I want. Writers, a private room, a peaceful outdoor setting for long walks, someone to fix meals and make coffee, and time to write, write, and write.
What things are on your wish list that you can make happen rather than just hope they some about someday? Have you even done a writer's retreat? Where?
