That's easy: I hope to write a book that will touch the hearts and minds of readers. I want to write a book that everyone is talking about, because they can't get the characters out of their minds. I want to finally be able to say, "I'm a published author" with pride, because others will have heard of the book. I want to be able to take my frequently-ignored husband out to dinner with my royalties, to thank him for being such a supportive man while I listened to my muse and spent hours tapping away on my laptop. But most of all, I hope to meet some readers who have read my books and want to tell me how much they enjoyed it, how it gave them a new perspective on love and life, and how they have put me on "auto-buy", as they anxiously await my next book.
So what about you? Share your bucket list goals, and maybe we can generate good will for all of us to achieve them. Are yours personal, professional, or based on a passion, like mine?
