I thought about changing the title of the blog to “Where Sky Sharks Fear to Tread” but then I realized that there is nowhere that Sky Sharks fear to tread, and also that they would probably eat me for even implying it. So.
We’ve all thought it.
If only I didn’t have to go to a day job and stay home and write all the time.
Some of us like our day jobs. I do, but I would still give it up in a moment for the chance to write.
But then the doubts creep in. Let’s say I took the plunge, quit my job, and decided I was going to write full-time – would I be able to? Or would I procrastinate on Twitter for hours and play Pokemon?
I would hope that I’d be able to impose some sort of organizational structure, but I am really easy to distract. (My husband says I have ADD but I like to think that I am just too awesome to do one thing at a time.)
Still, I dream.
At what point would you make that leap? When you hit the bestsellers’ list? When you sell a book? As soon as you can manage it without your spouse throttling you?
Any ideas on how you’d lay out your day? How many projects you’d work on at a time?
While we’re dreaming, we might as well plan out the entire thing.
