I Wanna Be All the Things...
I want to be the girl who knows who published with who and who is repped by who and what are they working on now even though no one else knows...
I want to visit everyone's blogs!
I want to chat with all of you like we're old friends so I can actually get to know you.
I want to be the mom who has snacks for my kids waiting when they get home from school and cooks delicious meals every night and eats healthy (not just MOST of the time) and works out every day and irons her husband's shirts once in a while instead of just tossing them in the dryer for 5 minutes, or telling him he knows how to freaking iron a shirt... ;-O
I want to be the writer who takes her time with every project to make it something special.
I want to be the one who comes up with the idea that makes everyone slap their heads and think - why didn't I think of that??
(It's a selfish one, I know, but don't even tell me you've never finished a book someone else wrote and had this thought)
I want to be known for being nice.
I want to wear my converse all year long without my feet freezing.
I want to never say no when someone asks me to read their book. And I wish that I could turn all crits around in three days or less. I wish I owned a hard copy of all of my friends' books (but they're REALLY freaking prolific)
I want to spend hours a day writing and hours a day on twitter and facebook keeping up with my peoples and keep my house perfect and sew all the beautiful things I see in my head, and it's just never going to happen.
And I'm WAY too hard on myself - just like most of us tend to be at times.
Now that my kids are in school, I'm finding a better balance, but I will never be able to do all the things I wish that I could do, and I'm finally starting to be okay with that.
I'M GIVING AWAY BOOKS HERE
AND - I wrote a short story w/ one of my fav boys EVER - messy, awkward-adorable-professor type ;-) JUST came out :-D ALL I WANT, which you can see HERE.
