Recently I’ve been having a recurring dream about clearing out cupboards, in which I have a selection of cupboards full of stuff to sort out and organise. I think this is about not doing the things I should be doing - like formatting the 4 books for Kindle which have been on my to-do list for months now. It’s preying on my mind but life seems to conspire against me so that whenever it seems I will get the time to do it, something happens. Sigh. Cupboards and drawers (not the knickers variety!) appear often in my dreams – usually, in the dream, I am about to move house and have left everything until the last minute and realise that I haven’t even made a start on the cupboards and it is the day of the move! Arrgggh!
And on the subject of dreams, I realise that I have, finally and by default (redundancy) realised my childhood ambition – I am now, officially, a full time writer. It’s taken nearly 40 years and I think I’m so busy trying to keep on top of everything that I haven’t actually celebrated.
So if you always wanted to be a full time writer, don’t be discouraged if it hasn’t happened yet. Because, one day, it will. However long it takes.
