Write Your Perfect Sky #IWSG #amwriting #dreams
[I wrote this post as a member of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group where we share our worries and also offer support and encouragement to each other on the first Wednesday of every month. If you’re a writer like me and you’re looking for a bit of support, you can click the link and sign up here]
This month’s awesome Co-Hosts feature fabulous writing friends Tonja Drecker, Beverly Stowe McClure, Nicki Elson, Fundy Blue, and Tyrean Martinson!
Check out our IWSG homepage for recent news and events. And as always, thank you to founder Alex J. Cavaugh 🙂
On some far away cloud, writing success is me, able to spend the time I need producing stories in a timely fashion from my imagined worlds. I see me, continuing to partner with my writing coach to hone my stories into polished manuscripts ready for the world. I see me, conducting more writing and editing workshops to young people who need it, much further away in the sky.
This is my cloud nine vision years down the road. My children are still too young yet to devote the time I’d like to have, but they still see me struggling to hold on to my dreams, something I want them to always remember.
This months question asks: “Let’s play a game. Imagine. Role-play. How would you describe your future writer self, your life and what it looks and feels like if you were living the dream? Or if you are already there, what does it look and feel like? Tell the rest of us. What would you change or improve?”
Please excuse me for my late post as the stomach bug has struck my house.
Questions: What about you? What’s your dream? Are you doing it? Are you making plans and doing those?

Sorry! No worries.
When the kids are older, you’ll show them how dreams are achieved.
I like your sky dream.
I hope your whole family gets well soon. The stomach bug is no fun.
My dream is simply to make a living writing the stories I want to write. That might be asking for a lot, but I’m pretty stubborn about this dream.
I am too and I am glad to know I am not the only one 🙂
I like your dreams but it’s okay that your kids are too young for that for now. They grow up so fast. You don’t want to miss the precious time you have with them. Hope you all feel better soon.
I have no doubt you’ll do it. (When the time is right.)

I appreciate your sweet encouragement so much, Anna 🙂
And your kids see you actually holding on to your dreams, despite immense obstacles. That is so valuable.
Thank you so much for your encouragement Jacqui 🙂
Who knows – your kids may become part of your writer dream.
I think you might be right Diane 🙂
I hope you guys feel better soon. Happy IWSG!
If it helps. you’ll never regret the time you spend with your kids. They grow up fast and then there is plenty of time to write. And think of all the plots they’ll stir for you!
You always offer the best advice. Thank you 🙂
