LikeLike Reply That question gave me a jolt. Probably nowhere different if I don’t stop procrastinating and letting myself be distracted by things. LikeLiked by 3 people Reply I hope you’ll be able to come up with a plan so you can overcome your obstacles! Let me know if I can help! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I’m pretty much lacking in everything needed to come up with a workable plan right now – zero direction, motivation, energy, positivity or anything else useful. If you can think of a way to fix even one of those things, I’d love the help! LikeLiked by 1 person You can start with creating a list of things you need in order to get where you want to go regardless if you have them or not. Try thinking about what you want and make a list of what it is required to get there. Imagine it’s about someone else. What would someone need to get there? Like a recipe for a cake or something. Can you do that? LikeLiked by 1 person Think I’ve lost sight of where I want to go. I could only come up with one thing I wanted, and the basic recipe looks like this: 1. Write novel 2. Edit novel 3. Find publisher The problem being #1 – I’ve had writer’s block for weeks. So frustrating. LikeLiked by 1 person Maybe in order to solve that writer’s block, you need to read more and more things. That’s what successful writers recommend. LikeLiked by 1 person That’s a good idea. I don’t really make the time to read anymore. You should charge people for the advice you give on here. If I had any money, I’d pay 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Thank you so much for your kind words! I try to make people that spend their time here to feel better. To find something useful. In time, if the value I try to bring is good enough, I’m sure the money will come. I really hope mi advices will help you. LikeLiked by 1 person Age 88. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Whoops!

LikeLiked by 2 people 20 years from now….if I keep writing I”ll reach my goal of 100 books written. Work wise no idea…that will come later (hoping to be self-employed) LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Wow! 100 books! That sounds amazing! Aren’t you self-employed now? I know you already wrote lots of books, LikeLiked by 2 people Reply I wish! My royalty checks could keep me in mac n cheese for about a week. The market is gorged on my genre…I like to think mine is different though. LikeLiked by 1 person Dead or single, 54, busy involved in some sort of career. A productive day is a good day. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Dead or single? That’s an interesting way to put things. 🙂 LikeLike Reply I was just thinking before I read your question of the day how my health was going and about the behavior of some people around me. LikeLiked by 2 people I see. So your answer has been influenced by the thinking you had before. LikeLike Yeah. LikeLiked by 1 person Tough question. Hopefully I’ll be winding back the job that pays the bills because I’ll be just over 80 in twenty years and completely focused on family, friends and helping others. So in some ways no different than today, just with a lot more time. I’d like to see myself still healthy, with no more battle scars along the way both physically and mentally. I’d hope my better half is still by my side. I hope to be much more skilled in my artistic pursuits. Location wise I’ll still be in the great state of Maryland but hopefully with my feet in the sand at least half the year. Funny thing, just sitting here thinking about that question and how differently I would have answered it at various stages of my life. Sorry to ramble on. Have a good day all. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply This is a great life you described! I’ll come back with this question in a few years to see if you’re answer changes. 🙂 LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Hopefully published, with more dogs, and a nice house. LikeLiked by 3 people Reply What do you like to write about? LikeLike Reply Children books (picture books/early readers) and YA. My ideas aren’t really “adult” but I see them fitting better in YA than any other category. LikeLiked by 2 people Healthier – physically and emotionally. Watching my children and grand children and great grand children grow into themselves. Holding my hubby’s hand, while drinking coffee and watching Doctor Who. Those are the goals. LikeLiked by 3 people Reply That sounds like a plan! 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Either my book will be published or i will go carpe diem and go gambling (i only know how to play blackjack) LikeLiked by 2 people Reply What is your book about? LikeLike Reply A family that protects Earth and its twin planet. Of course there’s someone who wants all the magic power to themselves. I have a great plot twist in mind… Now to write it all down 🤔 The family origin is from unnamed Earth’s twin and they are called Lyinx humans 😐 LikeLiked by 1 person Very interesting. Good luck! 😀 LikeLiked by 1 person Thanks 😁 LikeLiked by 1 person Hopefully published LikeLiked by 2 people Reply I’m sure you’ll get published if you go forward with your writing! 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I would like to think that I will have successfully published a couple of books but like many other comments on this thread, procrastination is my evil friend LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Procrastination is indeed a big issue nowadays especially when we have so many distractions around us. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Hopefully I traveled all the places I am looking forward to visit, did that base-jumping thing, being surrounded by more kids and perhaps grandchildren too- Living a life with positive vibes, lots of sports-activities, cooking nice food, enjoying literature and a cozy well organized home. A swimming area will be my personal zone to calm down and be still a person who can solve problems for other people. Being spiritual and a great believer in god will always guide me to improve myself and help others to listen to their hearts and follow their dreams. Hopefully I will be an inspiration for others to believe in god, family and happy marriage life. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply I’m sure you can do all of that if you work hard enough! What places would you like to visit? LikeLike Reply No idea. I literally just posted about what it was like for me 20 years ago and this is not at all where I thought I’d be. But it’s funny, because it’s kind of the same… just flipped a bit. In 20 years time I will be on the verge of 52. I would like to think I had made a difference in the world, one that was for the better and not the worse. And I know it’s always a matter of whose perspective in terms of being able to judge that… But I would like to think I was a force for good… even if people think I’m evil… instead of going on another tirade (jesus I realise I write REALLY REALLY LONG comments), I might share this post and write my response. I’ll schedule it for tomorrow or something though. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply I love your comments! This difference between good and bad can be pretty tough sometimes, but if we do what we want to do (in the terms of good) and we feel fulfilled by it, it’s closer to good than bad (at least, from our perspective). LikeLiked by 1 person Reply That’s the stuff! I really appreciate it. Because you guys are thinkers, not just doers. It’s finding the harmony or balance between both. We’re not always perfect in the one single moment but that’s how we’re often judged. Because we can only ever care about what’s in front of their eyes, and what’s inside of their own heads.. and never both to even think about what it might be like if the situation was reversed.

May dad died when he was 50 LikeLiked by 1 person Grandparents, great grandparents, aunts, uncles, my dad, for a total of 11. It may go back farther. LikeLiked by 1 person Total of 11? I doubt you will be 12. 11 is destiny. You are at the start of a new beginning. You’ll be fine. 🙂 and if you do die instead of live through it, I’m happy to be wrong.
