So here we are at week 32 of the #MFRWauthor blog hop. The topic this time around is one of those things you might hear at job interviews. Where do you see yourself in 10 years...
Why is TEN the magic number? Why not three, or seven, or thirteen? What makes ten so special? Regardless that's not the question at hand. I'll ponder the reasoning later.
I'm not a writer that plans. I don't keep schedules well. Looking that far into the future, not an easy task. Not to mention the fact that I like to ignore my age on occasion so thinking about being ten years older is something I'd rather not do.
Moving on. 2027, we'll start with personal level. I might be a grandmother in that time, maybe not. My oldest will be right at thirty so that means hopefully settled in a career she loves and possibly married. My next in line, the oldest boy, will be pushing twenty-four. He may have settled down around that time and would be another candidate for giving me grandkids. At this point in his life (which makes sense) he doesn't know what he wants to do, but in ten years hopefully he'll have figured it out. I won't be an empty-nester though. Not quite, but close. My younger two will be 19 and 17.
If he's still been able to put up with me, I would be married to The Hubs for twenty-five years at that point. It'd be great if I could be about twenty pounds lighter in ten years, but I also hope it doesn't take me ten years to lose the twenty.
I have an aunt and my step-mother both battling breast cancer. My aunt is on round two with her fight. I really hope that in ten years both are still with the family.
Writing wise, hopefully in ten years I'm still writing. I can't make that a definite since no one can really know what the future holds. If I am still writing, it would be nice to have multiple books out. I've been a super slow writer, but I'm working on getting faster with that aspect. I'm an Indie author, it's been the path I wanted to take. That being said, I won't turn my nose up if I somehow managed to get traditionally published in the next ten years. To see one of my books in a bookstore would be amazing.
I also hope to be a little more well traveled. The Hubs and I have a wish list of places we'd like to go, so fingers crossed one or two have been crossed off the list.
That's about it. I don't really like these kinds of questions so not a whole lot of insight from me. Hopefully some of the other authors have more interesting posts for you to read.
What about you? Where do you see yourself in ten years?
