I’ve never been what you call rich, when I was a kid I lived in a trailer. I wanted a house that didn’t roll or get chewed up by tornadoes, not to worry about things being turned off. I have that now, but being used to not having those fancy things and having simple desires makes it hard for me to answer this question.
Even now that I have some money (still not rich but trying) I wouldn’t spend an arm and a leg on clothes or shoes, jewelry or make-up. No, I find that now I want things that are much more complicated, like time to do the things I want…. someone to spend time with me without the TV blaring in the background. Some quiet time to read, draw… or go to dinner… go for a drive. Someone to teach me how to do animation… It’s not that I don’t have someone… I do; it’s just we have different ideas of fun and how to spend our time. Might be he feels the same way and we’re just not communicating not sure…. but that’s not the point of this prompt.
Maybe I’m jealous of my friends who go out river rafting, to the zoo and out to dinner with friends? Maybe I’m old now and have different priorities?
Okay… nuff of that… Now just to focus on the material things!
I really really really wish I could go to a writer’s conference. I told one of my online friends about a conference, they went and even though they don’t even have a completed book yet, they have 4 publishers interested in their work! And to make things WORSE he went to work for the company putting on the conference!! *FACE PALM!!* I’m happy for him but I’m also honest enough to admit that I’m sooooooo incredibly jealous!
I’ve not been able to afford to go to a writer’s conference yet. 😦
I’ve got 2 books written and up on amazon.com and I’ve been busting my butt for a year now… no word from publishers.
