Dreams and aspirations
I work hard at my day job. I really enjoy what I do but I have dreams of other things.
I'm currently working on my first crime novel and this first one is, I hope, the first of many. It's to be a series. My protagonist is a female detective. A dedicated determined woman, but a woman with flaws and one who will go on to live with the repercussions of what she will live through in this first novel.
I've written pages of information on her and the other characters. I know them. I know the characters are strong enough to go forward into other novels.
The first draft is hard work and its not a quick process. I have to find the time between working and family, to write. I'm not in a race, I have no deadlines given to me other than my own personal goals but my dream is to complete this first novel, have an agent and publisher like it enough to publish it and to write more. Let the characters grow and evolve and have readers who love them, faults and all.
This is my dream. What do you dream of?
