YA Highway RTW: In the Future
This week's topic: What do you hope to be writing in one year? Three? Five?
I've actually thought about this a lot. Where do I see myself in five years writing wise. But I'm getting ahead of myself.
One Year: One year from now I hope to be doing the same thing. Yeah it would be nice to at least have a literary agent, but I'm being realistic. As for now I like where I am, I'm in no real rush. Maybe things will change when I actually have a novel finished. Since I am a creative writing minor I'll probably write a lot more than I am this semester. I can predict what I will be doing a year from today. Outlining my NaNo Novel. As of right now I'm defiantly doing NaNo next year.
Three Years: I really hope things are different. I'll be out of college, starting a career as a Stage Manager. I've never really thought this part out through. I want to be a published author. I want to be a Stage Manager. I can do both, right? Both jobs are so time consuming. Time management is one of those things I'm working on. I can have the best of both world. And yes that was a Hannah Montana reference. Deal with it.
Five Years: Wow I'll be twenty-five years old. Theatre and Writing is what I want to do. Who knows maybe I'll write a play. I think the big difference between three years from now and five years is I'll actually know what I'm doing. In three years I'll be in that awkward "fresh out of college" stage.
When I think too much about this stuff my head hurts. I just need to take this one day at a time. But the one thing I'm absolutely positively sure about is that I will be writing YA. No doubt about that. It's what I love to read and write. That won't be changing.
How about you where do you see yourself in the future?
