NOTE: After this week's IWSG entry, I will take a break from blogging until January's IWSG in order to finish some writer's chores and handle all the Christmas logistics of presents, travel, and keeping the neighborhood squirrels well-fed. So Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all, and to all, a good write!
Okay, now let's turn our attention to another month of things that make writers go WAH or maybe WA-HOO, depending on your mood. Thank you to our supportive host, the amazing Ninja Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh, and his hard-reading co-hosts this month: Jennifer Hawes, Jen Chandler, Nick Wilford,Juneta Key, JH Moncrieff, Diane Burton, and MJ Fifield!
December's scintillating question: In terms of your writing career, where do you see yourself five years from now, and what’s your plan to get there?
Seriously? What is this? A job interview? Gah. Okay, I'll bite.
Where do I see myself five years from now?
(a) enjoying fame and fortune as my novel rockets to the top of the New York Times Best Seller's List
(b) whining that if I could only break my Netflix habit, then I could be awake enough in the morning to put a coherent sentence together
(c) realizing my potential by appropriately iterating cross-unit niches and energetically promoting wireless testing procedures which will dramatically engage quality partnerships and uniquely pontificate multimedia based users
(d) successfully petitioning for my release from the mental health facility my family will have put me in by then
And the ever-popular follow-up: What's you plan to get there?
(a) drop into a coma in which my every dream comes true
(b) inhale, exhale, repeat
(c) Credibly foster flexible scenarios (sounds like writing to me), proactively synergize technically sound deliverables (audio books anyone?), and most importantly, dramatically plagiarize enterprise-wide resources (by legally changing my name to Steven King).
(d) Write petition now before I completely lose it.
Which of the above choices sums up your expectations for the next five year? Want to grab some of those awesome (c) phrases? Go here.
Whatever your path for the next five years, I hope it's a beautiful one. Peace.
