Do you have a long-held goal or wish? Maybe you want to run a marathon, or visit Thailand, or become a supermodel. Perhaps you knew since you were a child that you wanted to be an astronaut/accountant/acrobat.
Is there something you’re yearning to do?
For me, it’s to write a book. The problem is that the universe didn’t give me more specific instructions. What should I write about?
At one point, during the Greed-Is-Good 1980s, I wanted to be the next Jackie Collins, writing fiction about the rich, sleazy and famous (with big shoulder pads). I’ve also dabbled with other topics ranging from food & fitness to personal finance. But, alas, no book.
More recently my book-writing desire has quietly percolated, wondering when the right topic would present itself again.
