Self Discovery Prompt: Dream Job

Okay, I’m running behind on my road to self discovery, but hey what’s new? This prompt is easy, my dream job…

Today is your first day at your dream job. You’re so excited you can barely contain yourself. When you arrive at work, you
take a minute to look around and appreciate the moment. You can’t believe you actually got this job. Where are you? Why do
you value this job so much?

Well, I’m already doing my dream job, writing. What more could I ask for? However, it’s not just about putting words on paper, that’s the romantic notion about my dream job. As with all jobs there are elements which are more difficult than others and it depends on the individual. For me, and the reason for running behind, it’s the marketing side of things that I’ve struggled with. But, I’ve accepted that it’s all part and parcel of being a writer, whether traditionally published or an indie author, and I’ve joined a course to help me learn the ropes. I’m not a natural marketeer, more like a chronic introvert if I’m honest, but I’m really enjoying my learning curve and more to the point it’s making a difference, so a great investment.

So where am I? Well I’m sat on my patio (picture below to prove it) and it’s 11am, around 25 degrees, the dogs are barking at the very rare vehicle we have visiting our lane and I can hear a squeaky tractor somewhere in the distance – that’s a given here in Le Marche at this time of the year. Oh, and did I mention the resident pair of Golden Orioles I converse with?

 

The other great thing about my dream job is that I get to act out as well – as I said I’m a chronic introvert so I live vicariously through my characters, get to visit places (in theory) I’ve never been and even get to create my own little world. *Sigh* things really couldn’t be any better.

Ciao for now…

Hi! Lovely to come across a fellow indie-author living in la bella Italia. I enjoyed reading this post. I too find the marketing and publicity side hard. But am discovering it is necessary!
