Listening to: “Home” by Michael Bublé (on repeat while I write!)
Making Me Smile: My cute baby who’s trying so hard to laugh for the first time ☺
I don’t often watch daytime television, however given the amount of time I now spend sitting feeding my little boy, every now and then I flick it on. Yesterday, I saw a fabulous Oprah show about dream jobs – people who were being paid to do what they love. From florists to shoe designers and cake bakers, they had a dream and they had managed to fulfil it.
Having always dreamed myself of becoming an author, I can honestly say that I’m now living that dream. I still work a day job – as a freelance writer – but now I’m also paid to write romance. Hopefully that will become a full-time career on its own one day, but right now I’m just so excited to be seeing my name on the cover of beautiful books.
Even when I’m tired or stressed, I look forward to sitting down at my laptop and flexing my fingers to write. For me, there is nothing more special than devising characters and making them fall in love on the page. After years spent honing my craft and trying to get published, I love the fact that I’ve achieved my goal of attaining my dream job.
So my question to you is, are you in your dream career? And if not, what would you love to be paid to do?
My debut release, Soldier on Her Doorstep, is released in the UK in June. I'll be giving away a copy on my blog as soon as my author copies arrive, so keep an eye out! www.sorayalane.blogspot.com
