Goals

The other night I started thinking about what my goals as a writer are.

The more I thought about it the more I realized that I have a lot of fairly concrete ideas, just waiting for the luxury of the time to write. So, I made a list.

Of course, none of these projects will likely earn me much--if any--money, but it is nice to think about where I would like to be as a writer in about five to ten years. The list is ambitious, to be sure, but then, I'm no Asimov, either.

In no particular order, here's the list I jotted down:

Novels

The Amber Room
+2 more

Short story collections/memoirs

Abilene
Paris
86'd: Restaurant memoir

Biography: Lynda

Autobiography

Stage play - Mama's Boy

Screenplay - The Food Heist

TV episode - Law & Order: The Middle Man

Poem volumes
Ink
Bindings
+10 more

Epic poem: The Poet O

How-to: Waiting Tables

@ d2: You can be the producer/director, but can you arrange for the two weeks at the beach that I'll need to write it first?

I know where there's great beaches, and you can stay as long as you want at no cost...
