Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

This week's Top Ten theme is Top Ten things I would ask the bookish Genie.. Oh this...

  • Help me improve my writing craft - Am I boring for putting that? I don't thinks so.  I want to improve (always) so that I can move on to the next thing on my list.
  • Help me land an awesome agent - Because every writer needs an agent.  And this moves me on to my next item.
  • Become a traditionally published author - I'm personally not wanting to go the self-pub route.  And I could use all the help I can get!
  • To go to BEA 2016 - I haven't yet decided if I can go.  It's kind of really expensive, between event tickets, airplane tickets, a hotel... yea. And I'd better decide fast, because hotels get booked quickly.
  • Jodi Meadows to be at YALLFest 2015 - Okay I know this won't happen, but a girl can dream, right?  I would love to meet my favorite author who loves to break my heart into a million little pieces.  And I will be at YALLFest 2015
  • ARCs of Asunder, Infinite and The Orphan Queen - Okay I feel like you all know how I feel about Jodi's books.  Those are the ones I need for my ARC collection.  Oh please, book genie, bring them to me?
  • While we're on the subject of ARCs... - How about an ARC of Truthwitch or Passenger?  Or both?  I'm hoping to snag a Passenger ARC at YALLFest -fingers crossed-
  • To Win NaNoWriMo - I said it.  I'm doing NaNoWriMo this year. I did Camp NaNoWriMo and did not win.  I will, however, be working on two projects this time (I can't focus).  So I'm hoping to get to 50k words with that.
  • Speaking of... - Help me focus.  I often have trouble focusing on a single book at a time.  And as I said, I can't seem to work on one project at a time.
  • My final wish - was already granted.  I wanted an ARC of The Mirror King. And the book gods/book genies/Jodi Meadows saw to it that I got one.  Post on that (and two reviews) to come.
What are your bookish wishes?


  1. Best of luck on your journey to authorship! :)

    I'd love going to BEA, but I don't know that is in my near future. Still, a girl can dream.

  2. The first three wishes are definitely something I would wish for as well! I need to find more time to focus and work on my manuscript. Great list!

    1. I know, it's tough! I'm trying to make sure that I have plenty of time in November by getting really ahead (blogwise and reading-wise) this month. :)

  3. A fantastic list! :-) I hope some of your wishes come true!

  4. I wish I could stay more focused, too. Every day I give myself a pep talk about how much I want to read,,,and then I don't do it.

  5. OOOh nice! I like these wishes too! And yay for YALLFest! I am going again this year! Was supposed to go with my friend but she had to cancel. So now I'm alone again. (sob) Would totally love to meet up with you though! It was crazy last year and I had a tough time trying to get to all the authors!

    Great wishes!!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

  7. Good list. I'd want to go traditional published too, given the choice. And BEA- whats not to like about a bookish convention?
