I’m a reader, a writer, an editor, a teacher and an absolute madwoman when it comes to pursuing interesting ideas. Like gamification and advanced learning technologies. And budgeting and financial management. And raising kids who aren’t afraid of the world outside our four walls. I wish I had seventy hours in every day to fit in all the things I want to learn about and do.
I’m currently at work on three full-length novels, one of them for young adults. I’m hoping to have that one finished by late winter (I’m on the second draft now). Then I’ll be able to get back to working on the second and third ones. In the meantime, a few other ideas have come to stand just outside the door. Listening to public radio gives me all the story ideas I could ever need.
Life is pretty good for that, too.
But those ideas are going to have to wait a while – or I’m going to have to make a deal with someone to exchange a few years in my 90s for those few extra hours every day.
This year’s challenge is to read these 50 novels (with all the time I have, see). They say I’ll be a better person at the end of it. Maybe I’ll even be a better writer, too.
