The Life of a Writer: Imaginary Life of an Author

Sadly, I only have one more Imaginary life after today, to share with you.

Today’s going to be about my dream of writing- and not just writing like I do on here. I’ve loved reading, and have slightly thought of writing my own book one day, but never took too much consideration to it. Over the past several months (not quite a year, but it feels like it sometimes), I’ve been more and more interested in what type of book I would write.

I have a few ideas listed in a note of mine in my cross-platform notes app/website that I use. I won’t share them as I don’t want to spoil anything!

In today’s world, you can go outside of the publishing business, and self publish. I didn’t know that until listening to Aileen’s podcast with Cara Alwill Leyba last summer. Check it out on Google Music,and iTunes. I somewhat looked into it after listening to the podcast, but didn’t do anything past that.

Awhile back, during one of our daddy daughter dates (somewhere in the mess of Easter, I think), my dad and I had talked about it as well, since he was looking into writing a book himself. He got farther into it than I did. He at least started writing the thing!

I was a bad daughter, as I never really read the insert he had written and sent me. I should have. I think I still have it in my email. If not, I’ll ask if he still has it sometime, maybe before I travel next month.

Let’s make an internet pact right here: if I can stick with this blog, regularly like I have, for the next year (until June 2019, let’s put it), I’ll start writing a book. I even put a reminder on my reminder app in my phone!

Part of what Aileen shared in her video that introduced this topic last summer, is that we should try to incorporate some of our ideal lives into our actual life. I’ve already jumped on the band wagon on my photography dreams and cooking.

So I ask again, what are some dream lives of yours? I’d like to hear them!
