I have been participating in the post a week contest, a week has not passed but I felt the need to write about today’s suggested topic.
Do I want to live forever?
Yes I most certainly do. I want to live long enough to see all 3 of my boys grow into men, find happiness, and achieve their goals. To see my grandchildren, great-grandchild, great-great grandchildren, etc. achieve the same. I know ,this is every parents wish…We are such saps!
The writer in me wants to live forever too! I of course want to land a book deal, and have a cup of whatever with Mr. Stephen King. Imagine the stories I could tell in years to come. Imagine if I and only I could live forever what I could achieve. Eventually I would know exactly what agents/ publisher were really looking for. With an infinity amount of time, I could rewrite, revise and rewrite until absolute perfection. I would master the art of querying. I would be the queen of self marketing. Wait, with that much time I would learn everything there is to learn about writing and publishing, I would be my own publishing house!!! Writer’s would want to sit to have a cup of whatever with me!!!!
But with all the knowledge and self-gratification I would be alone. I would still be a mother who writes. No!! I do not want to live forever. I want to be here and achieve what I can and watch my boys do the same, for as long as “my higher power” intended.
