The other day I figured between my office job at the publishing company and my home office, I spend about 10 hours each day sitting at a desk.  Despite my writer’s butt (flat and waffle-shaped thanks to my wicker chair), I couldn’t imagine doing anything else.  At the publishing firm, I’m fortunate to be part of a team of amazing publishing professionals in a business I’m crazy about.  And in my home office, or lounging on my patio (an extension of my office), my body may appear to be stationary while my mind takes off in a zillion different directions — either brainstorming a twist on an old idea or traveling to uncharted territory ripe for exploring.  The end of my story hasn’t been written yet, where fantasy meets reality, but until then I’m living a dream in the best of both worlds.

What will it take for you to live your dream?
