Day 103: An Idea That I Had

In the Retreat that I attended on Saturday, we had break out groups where we had to tell the others about our lives after our dream had come true. Basically, we were to act as if it had already happened. It was a little strange at first telling them about my life as a bestselling author…coming up with all the details and answering their questions. But it got easier and easier to do and it began to feel more real to me. So today, I was thinking about how to prolong that feeling and came up with the idea of writing a letter to a friend and telling them about my life as the aforementioned bestselling author. I’d write at least one letter a week in a notebook and they’d be full of details about book tours and dealings with my publisher and agent and about my writing schedule and the sequel I’m writing, etc… Not only would it keep me in touch with my dream, it would also shew me how my dream evolves over time. I posted it in the retreat Facebook group and SARK said it was a brilliant idea. So I’m a happy writer tonight. But the idea can be used by anyone for any dream that they might have. And it’s fun and kind of addictive. Give it a try.
