When I was in my 30s I can honestly say that the only time I thought of the year 2015 was when I watched BACK TO THE FUTURE. I never thought it would be much different than the 1980s. I was really looking forward to the time all the kids would be out of the house and I’d have more time to write. Even 10 years ago I never thought so much of my time would be promoting my own books. Of course in 2005, I rarely thought I’d sell…ever. Seeing my stories in print seemed like a fairy tale.
I’ve always been drawn to movies of the future. But I never imagined all the gadgets and apps and time-consuming social media platforms that are here today. They can be distracting, not only for writers, but everyone. Have you seen or experienced the selfie stick? I just spent a week in NYC and they are dangerous. If you thought people were distracted walking around looking at their cells…just wait until you’re in Times Square and people are walking around wielding selfie sticks. Ouch.
Back to 2015...The year of what next? But here we are and I still haven’t thought beyond 2016 and my releases next year. 2020 is only 5 years away. Just 5 short years. Nope. Imagining my life then gets me nowhere. Goals? Mine are simple. Get healthy and write. And in 2020, they’ll most likely be the same.
