Coming in to the home stretch now!
Day 23: Your dream job
Do I need to say it? I want to write. I want to write fiction, and I want to get paid (at least a little bit) for it. I don’t need a bestseller, I don’t need a million dollars. I just want it to be my job. It’s nothing I feel entitled to; I know that no matter how much I practice and how hard I work, it might be a dream forever. But that’s it, that’s my dream job. Working from home, with my own office space, writing.
Slight tangent: A friend and I went to see the movie Troy when it was in theatres, and she mentioned the fact that there was, in fact, at least one person who got paid to apply make-up to Brad Pitt’s ass. She said this was her dream job.
I don’t know if that still stands, but you have to admit, that’s a more interesting dream job than mine. 😉

A noble goal 🙂

Your dream job is totally my dream job too – quite simply to earn a full time living from writing. I have every confidence you’ll get there Kate. 🙂
