Dream is my favorite word, people. In fact, weirdly enough, part of the reason I first fell in love with Bobby Darin, besides his voice, was the fact that one of his biggest hits was a song called "Dream Lover." Which song I actually don't care much for, but the title "dream-lover" really suited me as a teen, and does still today -- a lover of dreams. ("Daydream Believer" was another favorite song of mine as a teen because I felt it described me. Still basically does.)
So anyway, here are my writing dreams for 2018!
I dream of finishing the rough draft of Dancing and Doughnuts (my western "Twelve Dancing Princesses" retelling) by the end of this long weekend. I have two chapters left. I think I can do this.
I dream of having Dancing and Doughnuts revised and polished and formatted and out in the world by summer. May would be ideal, and since I'm just dreaming here, I'll say May.
I dream of assisting my best friend in any way necessary as we get a novel of hers out into the world. (That's kind of her dream, but also mine cuz... I want to hold her book in my hands.)
I dream of starting another project. I might be revising the first YA western I wrote, which I wrote about 5 years ago. Or I might be starting another western fairy tale retelling. Since this not a plan or a goal, but a dream... I dream of doing both!
