As writers, we daydream so much.
This is great for creative stories, because we have the best imagination in the land. From those daydreams, we can make castles, magical creatures, and narratives no one’s ever heard of. We can create more than any non-creative person ever thought of before.
But you know what comes from those daydreams too? A best-selling author’s future.
I always picture my rise to fame a bit strange. I see myself with my friends from high school and college – those nerds – while having fun. I would take my friends around the world to experience life with me. Sometimes I picture answering questions from my fans and having my friends ‘interview’ me for YouTube videos or so. I know. Strange, right?
But it never stops there. I see myself getting nervous on Ellen’s TV show, but her jokes always lighten the mood. I’m not always on Ellen. Sometimes I’m on Jimmy Fallon’s or James Corden’s show. It changes every once in a while. I would get my friends and family front row seats to all the shows.
I’d meet fans at strange places, but mostly book stores. Sometimes I’d sign random books of mine and leave them for fans to find.
But, for now, it’s just a daydream, right? It’s a crazy writer’s daydream.
Maybe I can make it come true.
