Tell Me Something Tuesday: Dream Job

Tell Me Something Tuesday

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…

If you could have any job in the world, what would it be and why?

Famous author. Not that I crave fame, but I do crave a good living and saying just “author” doesn’t guarantee the good living. But famous author? Yeah I think JK Rowling, Nora Roberts, Stephen King… I think they’re all doing just fine financially. I love to write. And the idea of spending my days writing, editing, connecting with readers (of MY BOOKS) would be an absolute dream. I know, like any job, there are some sucky aspects. Like people who hate your work and trash talk about you. The social media element I would definitely want to hire someone else to handle because I kind of hate social media… but again, we’re saying Famous Author, so I’m assuming we get to skip to that part. And then working from home is also great – as I know from the past couple years – but the ability to set my own hours would be even more fantastic. I also like to imagine Famous Author because I’m assuming that would my love of writing translated into being good enough at it for people to enjoy my work LOL. Coincidentally, I do have a short story that was published and the reviews I stumbled upon (wasn’t looking for them) were all really positive, so I like to think that means I am actually a decent writer – beyond the opinions of my friends and family. So yeah, that’s my dream job.

What about you? What’s your dream job?

    If I had a magic wand… But alas, I don’t. I do hope that you get to write more and able to publish more of your work someday! Good luck.

  2. My dream job would be retirement too. But if we were actually talking jobs, I would love to ride horses for a living (that is what I went to college for, originally). But it is so much work for so little financial reward. Spending a lot of time working nights and weekends and lots of traveling to shows. I’m glad to just have it as a hobby. Zookeeper or wildlife rehabilitator would be fun too.

    • LOL I’ve been dreaming of this since I was a little girl. The short story I published is a YA dystopian. I also have written and not published an Urban Fantasy – 1 book fully written, another half written. And then I’ve plotted and made notes on a fantasy thriller and also an autobiography of sorts. And that’s just the stuff that’s on paper and started — lots more in my head! But I definitely lean into fantasy.

  3. I wanted to be an author a long time ago. I actually wrote a book but it was awful. lol Back when I was going through my Horror phase. It was so bad so I never published it.

    I think I would want to be a space photographer. Those people with the big, powerful telescopes that they can attach a camera to and take these outstanding pictures of space and other planets. If I could get paid to do that, that would be my dream job.

  4. And you should do it! You are always pushing me to follow my dream! Well you need to do the same. You need to just write a little bit a day. I think you would do amazing because you have a skill for writing.
    DO IT!!! I’ll make the cover and promo material.
