Taking part of Emma Newman’s Three Wishes, I have put together a list of, well…three wishes in order of what I feel is from easiest to hardest. While the actual act of granting wishes shouldn’t be based on a difficulty scale, I’ve
become a bit pragmatic in the last year. Plus, the higher up the difficulty of wish granting completion there is, the cooler that person (or persons) will be. So, without further rambling, I present my three wishes:
Wish #1: I would love to have illustrators willing to work with me on completing my novels. I would be willing to work either on a royalty basis or for a (small) nominal fee or even for free.
Wish #2: Twenty years ago I had the chance to talk with Neil Gaiman but, being immature at half my age and completely gob smacked, I missed that chance. Now I would be ecstatic at the opportunity to do it again. I have a lot to say and ask and will do my best to not pass out. No guarantees.
Wish #3: Earlier this year my wife was diagnosed with an auto-immune disease which is uncureable. While this would be quite the wish to fulfill, needless to say, the granter would indeed be on the highest level of cool.
Well that’s all. Three simple wishes. If anyone feels so inclined to grant or assist with said wishes, I would be incredibly grateful.
Don’t forget about the coolness.
