Wednesday Randomness: Oh, the Things I Wish…

Happy Wednesday! This week, we’re talking about Wishes. If we were granted three writing-related wishes, what would they be?

Well, I’ve no shortage of wishes, but I’m limited to three. And they have to be related to writing…. So here we go, then.

Wish #1 – Right in this moment?


A new computer. My computer died a horrible death, and I’m still mourning. I’m lucky in that my sister-in-law has loaned me hers until I can get a replacment. This is a great thing, but on another level, it’s not so great a thing. Because the urgency to get a new isn’t there. Oh, it is for me, because I need a computer of my own, but for those around me, it’s not urgent. It’s very easy to put off a bigger purchase like this and put money towards other things (and yes, those things need to be addressed as well) when I’m still able to write on a borrowed computer. There are myriad reasons why the computer situation is frustrating. So yes, first wish would definitely be a new computer just for me that no one – and I mean, NO ONE – else can touch.

Wish #2 – A space just for me. I don’t have an office or anything. It’s fine because I can work anywhere with a laptop. And, honestly, with having four kids, I never expected to have an office or room of my own. At least not until they’re grown and out of the house. The tough part is I end up writing in the shared spaces of the home, so interruptions are frequent.

…enough without constant interruptions!

So, yes, I’d wish for space just for me and writing and doing the things I do. 🙂

Wish #3 – The ability to function on less sleep. Most days I’m…

If I could function on a handful of hours and actually be productived, that would be excellent.


Go on over and see what the other ladies are wishing for…

  1. That is so funny you managed to sneak in a pic of Colin. Color me surprised!! NOT!! LOL! I’m so sorry for your computer loss. If I had a big old pile of money I’d buy you one right now oh and get you an office you could run away to so you could be alone. Thankfully, the only people I have to hide from are the cats. *sigh* And with it being cold they are relentless in their pursuit of me and warmth.

  2. OMG… how did I not think of these? The more time, and yes, I need a more powerful computer. And being able to function on NO SLEEP, PEOPLE. I need to just keep going… all the time. Sleeping is for when you’re dead. I want to just go all the time. But I don’t think even uppers will do that, lol. And I see you managed to get a pic in of Colin, you sly dog…
