Something good is out there waiting for you.

(My daughter, the Serious Girl.*)

It's been a bad time for me. Forget the writing stuff, right now I just want a day job that will pay the bills and not make me miserable. This is actually a tall order -- I'm an attorney, so even in good economic times our jobs usually pay the bills OR don't cause misery, not both. In hard times... well. I imagine I'm not the only lawyer in my current position right now.

But, it's going to get better, right? Something good is going to come along, even if we don't know what it is yet. We just have to keep looking.

What good thing are you hoping for right now? Post a wish or dream in the comments, and I'll think a good thought for you. And if you want to do the same for me, I won't complain.

And now, I'm going to go ask the Serious Girl for a smooch. Those always cheer me up.

* In the interests of her privacy, I'm not going to show my daughter's face on this blog or give her real name. I'm sure you all understand.


  1. A wish?- to wake up everyday without any dark thoughts in my head.
    A dream?- to find wonderful agent to campion my brilliant writing and get me amazing publishing contract...or maybe just a contract...or just an agent? any agent...maybe?
    I think I'll probably have to settle for making my writing brilliant first, hey!

    Hope life starts looking up :) Smiles and thoughts from me.

  2. Okay, universe, we have a request for brilliant writing and literary agents all around, please!

    (Tabitha, I see you are in Australia. My husband and I still consider our 3 weeks in Oz to be our best vacation ever... driving 10,000 km and camping out at night, it was AWESOME.)

  3. Sending you good juju, thoughts and prayers for a profitable window to open.

    My wishes are for a nap and time to work on my manuscript revisions, not necessarily in that order. :)

  4. A ladybug just landed on my window. I'm taking that as an auspicious sign.

    Thanks for entering the fiction contest, Angie!

  5. I wish there were good non soul sucking jobs available for everyone looking - particularly for my husband the recent college grad and you.

  6. ...sending good thoughts for your husband as well...
