I was reading on Melissa's blog the other day about the dream she'd had since childhood about what her life would be like when she was published and it got me to thinking. I've had the same type of dream lurking in my head. It's changed and altered over time, until it settled into a nice blend of reality over fantasy. It looks something like this:
Get up at 7 AM, whisper into my incredibly handsome husband's ear (did I mention there was still a little fantasy allowed...?) that I was going downstairs to write. I would spend the next five hours immersed in my story world, pausing of course to give said handsome hubby a good-bye kiss that would leave him thinking of me at the most inopportune of times throughout the day.
After my five hours of writing was completed, I would grab a light lunch, and then pop on over to the gym where I could work out for an hour or more without waiting for any of the equipment because the rest of the world was at work. Then I would grab a shower and meet another writing friend for coffee and brainstorming. After that I would zip over to the library and do some research before I went home for supper, which I would actually have time to prepare before I was so hungry it felt as if my belly was gnawing at my backbone.
Hubby would arrive home and we'd spend a leisurely mealtime catching up and sipping wine. Then I'd go soak in the tub for an hour and read. The rest of the evening would be up for grabs, free time to do what we wanted. Then we'd crawl back into bed and...and well it gets a little x-rated after that--hey, I did say my IDEAL day!
So how would you describe your ideal day?
