Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and Bookish
So the challenge today was to list your bookish bucket-list. Unfortunately, when it comes to reading, I honestly can't think that far in the future. It's like trying to predict who my favorite unborn child will be, or what I'll want to eat in two years. So I'm sort of steering off to left field and taking this from a writer's viewpoint. These are the Top
Ten Five goals of my writing career.
1. Write and publish at least 10 books
During my lifetime, I want to at least write ten books. Maybe it's a pride thing, but I want to be able to click on my name link on Amazon and see a handful of shiny covers under it.
2. Be a guest at a comic book convention
So, I'm usually a vendor at comic book conventions. I'd love to be invited to one just as a guest though. Even a small one.
3. Feel satisfied
At least in this stage of my writing career, I feel like there is too much to say and not enough time to say it. I want to write enough to be able to sit back and just feel like what I said was heard.
4. Encourage another writer
Being a writer for me is always about passing on the baton, not just about hogging the glory for yourself. I've always been inspired by other authors, and I want to share that inspiration and encouragement one day.
5. Inspire a piece of fan art
I won't lie, I love seeing what other people think my characters look like. Even if I'm an artist, sometimes other people really capture my characters. While I've held an art contest before, I think it would be fun to see a piece of fan art someone did just for the heck of it.
So yeah, those are my Top Five honest 'dreams' as a writer. To fill out my other 'five' tops for the week though, here are the top 5 covers from my To-Read list. I tried not to repeat any from last week, but Cress sort of snuck in there... Oh well.
