The longest-lasting desire of my life (that is yet unaccomplished) is to become a published author. Maybe not my memoir, though: I’m having second thoughts about going public with what I’ve written. Though I suppose I will eventually get it in the condition to publish. I am working on a new book – a work of fiction.
I’ve heard that many writers will finish a first book and move on to the second (which I’m personally finding much easier to write) and then later go back and revisit / edit the first. That’s my current plan because inspiration has hit and I’m enjoying the honeymoon phase of writing this new story.
I’ve wanted to be an author since I was seven years old, and that drive has not left me.
I’d love to hear your answer to this question: what is something YOU hope to do in your life?
