I read a blog last night where the author asked this very question.
While reading her response I caught a flood of inspiration and decided I would take a stab at it.
At first, my mind instantly goes to money. If I could do anything I would create an endless stream of income. But that idea seemed too basic. Too attainable. Not worth the opportunity presented.
Next, I thought of being a thrill seeker. Base jumping, sky diving, parkour on high rises, mountain climbing, you know, that kind of thing. But after giving it more thought I figure that’s too predictable and quite honestly not in line with my personality.
Then I thought, what about the answer the original blogger posted. She detailed how she would go about helping people with mental health issues and accessibility to mental healthcare issues. Her passion for the quest was evident and I thought, surely I could do something like that.
What would me helping people look like? What of myself could I give to better the life of someone else?
It seems the most obvious thing for me would be to complete and publish several novels.
To become a successful Novelist.
To have the ability to take creative ideas and turn them into beautifully written complex pieces of fiction and sell them across multiple platforms.
I’d like to experience the joy that comes from meeting a group of people who have read my work and have had it touch them, inspire them, or motivate them in a positive way.
Much like the blogger who’s post inspired me to write this excerpt, this is a goal I have already begun working to achieve.
Where we last left off I had just gotten the realization that a career in Real Estate was not for me and I committed to the idea of becoming a published author.
Well, last night I took the plunge and enrolled in my first writing class through the University of Arizona.
It’s a 4 week self paced course on the basics of writing. If I’m going to do this thing I may as well do it the right way. So I’ve decided to brush up on my grammar and punctuation before I really get in the thick of it.
Each week there will be a new writing exercise due so I’ll be posting them here as well as submitting them to my professor as a way to keep track of my progress and share the journey with you all.
I’m super excited about it and to be honest a little nervous, but that comes with the territory I guess.
Well, its Saturday morning and I need to head to the gym and get my day started but before I go, I’ll leave you with the same question posed to me.
If you could do anything, what would you do?
Until next time…
Don’t judge me. You don’t know my life!!!
