Tell Me Something Tuesday was hosted by Rainy Day Ramblings, but she has (temporarily?) stopped blogging. So a group of us that had been doing posts (Linda from Book Girl of Mur-y-Castell, Karen from For What It’s Worth, Roberta from Offbeat YA, Jen from That’s What I’m Talking About and me) decided to get together, come up with some more topics and keep the meme going.Michelle made us a logo and we’re off and running. For more details, check out this post where I reintroduced the meme.
I can be sporadic, but when I do join in I will always share next week’s topic at the end of the post. So, today is about…
Bookish jobs: if you could do something in the bookish world for employment, what would you choose and why?
This is super easy. I would be an author. I have wanted to be an author since I was a little girl. I’ve written stories my whole life and have a novel that I wrote needing some editing. I won a contest and had a short story published – “Simulated Perfection” – in the anthology Welcome to the Future in my real (maiden) name. But that’s as far as I’ve ever gotten.
I’ve thought about making a real go of it several times, but life always gets in the way. I wish I could get hired as an author and have an hourly paycheck from it. But since I can’t, I doubt I’ll ever fully get to that dream job. Maybe in retirement (which may also be a dream…).
