A genie once said, “Wish for anything you desire and I will grant your wish.” We should all be asked that question at the beginning of a new decade. What are our wishes at age ten, twenty, and so on and record our answers. Kind of like that documentary where people are filmed every seven years beginning at age seven. We can only imagine.

My top desires for this decade are connected to a deadline. They are on my bucket list. First on the list is to write a book next year. I call 2014 the year of the book. I am determined to finish at least one writing project and turn it into a published book. Time will tell, I can only imagine.

My other desires I see as much simpler and more important. Have my family maintain our health, finish a degree program, become deeper spiritually. You can see how important writing is to me in that I put essential things further down the list. I think this is what makes desire desire.

I conclude from this I have only one desire. “All the rest is master card?”

    Write on! You have a way with words, a love of the language, a gift to unwrap for the rest of us to enjoy! Go forth and write…and then publish!!

      Thanks Irene, what is your publishing status?

        Down in a depression at the moment. One has to have the hide of a rhinoceros to survive the publishing trail unless you are already a known person. I’ll probably end up self-publishing and that’s not the end of the world.

        Self confidence is challenged to a new level when I write. A constant battle with my inner critique.
