Dreaming...


Last week was a bad week, and it’s spilling over into this week. Sigh. I’ve played many a round of “Anywhere But Here” and “If I Was Queen of the Universe” as the water rises and the fires burn and I jump from the frying pan into the spilled milk.

It was appropriate, then, when the assignment for an on-line class I’m taking was to write my own fantasy bio. While the teachers of the class said to print out the fantasy bio and tape it above the computer, I’m really not in to positive affirmations all that much. An inspirational quote is about as good as it gets around here. But, oooh, a chance to be Queen of the Universe…

So here’s my fantasy bio:

Best-selling author Kimberly Lang has a full staff to see to the mundane details of life while she writes her award-winning books, spends quality time with her Amazing Child, and travels extensively to exotic locations with her Darling Geek. No longer in need of a pesky day job due to her six figure contracts, Kimberly’s stress level is remarkably low. Known for her great hair and amazingly thin thighs, Kimberly also looks much younger than her years and has a fabulous tan.

A girl can dream, right?

So while I’m off today seeing to day jobs and mundane details of life, let’s hear your fantasy bio.

After discovering the key to a hidden realm, Katherine Bone leapt through time and back, carrying with her various secrets and eyewitness accounts of love, which she vowed to make known to the modern world through the written word. Her stories and accounts have proven time and again that love conquers all, even in the face of adversity when hope is dismal and peace seems fleeting, giving new generations and all generations to come a clearer view of history and humanity.

Marilyn Puett has dominated the Dorchester magazine confessions market for the past decade. Her gripping tell-alls and sizzling romances are frequently featured on the cover and the accolades from her editors are too numerous to mention.

Because of her success, she's now able to limit her writing time so she can enjoy traveling with her husband, visiting with her children and granddaughter and just savor life in general.

Her next story will appear in an upcoming edition and is titled "Confessions of a Fifty-Something Biker Babe -- How I Dealt with My Husband's Latest Mid-life Crisis."


Okay... so I need to learn to dream bigger.

I thought this would be easy, but its not.

New York Times Bestselling Author and RITA winner Alexandra Frost knows a thing or two about a great romance. Over the years, she's written over 60 award-winning tales that she claims are a reflection of her wonderful relationship with her husband. She writes from her hundred-acre woodland retreat in Northern Alabama where she alternates between writing, being a mother, caring for her herd of furry beasts, and being fanned by a slew of pool boys that all look remarkably like Johnny Depp. When she can tear herself away from all that greatness, she visits her summer homes in Europe and the Carribbean and hosts retreats there for aspiring authors.

Let's see -- I want your thin thighs and great hair and assistants to handle the jobs I don't like, and I want SP's guys that all look like Johnny Depp, and I want the travel, success, etc.

I would also like to add, "Linda is never plagued with computer and/or blogger troubles." :-/

At the moment I'd like enough sleep so I don't feel like a zombie by mid afternoon and a book contract. I'm too exhausted right now to dream big. Although, the fanning pool boys might help. ;-)

You all are welcome to come by any time and share my pool boys. I have enough for everyone...

Since I'm not currently writing anything, mine would have to start with something along the lines of...."With the most well-behaved and polite children ever documented in history, Sheryl has ample time to dedicate to the many projects that fuel her character filled imagination. Her loving and utterly devoted husband proudly promotes his wifes' success and often enjoys critiquing for her." ....well you did say to dream big...and with the day I've had and all of the sibling squabbles I had to sort out, this sounded heavenly!

Angel said...

Though I didn't have time to dream big today, I'd like to say that a lot of this sounds good! :)

I'd love to sell not just a book, but several. And forget the pool boys, I want a half-naked man to clean my house!
