Welcome to week 11 of the MFRW blog hop. This week’s prompt is: If Only I Never Had to Do This One Task again . . .
When I sell enough books on a regular basis to hire a personal assistant, I will. Then, I will never have to . . . . Oh wait, I still would probably have to do those things. Top on my list would be writing the cover blurb. UGH!
I find it ironic that I can write a blurb for a friend or tweak their starting efforts enough that it’s back cover worthy. When I start to write my own blurb, however . . . *crickets*.
Why is that? Is it because I am too familiar with the story? I know too much and tend to want to give out details? I know two amazing authors who are fantastic with blurbs. I can send them a starting point and they will send me back something I can use! This is one of the reasons I have done pro bono work for those friends.
*Will trade editing for blurbs and elevator pitch!*
Blurbs would definitely be at the top of my list, but then there is also mailing the packages – I have carried packages around in my car for days before actually stopping at the post office.
* hangs head in shame*
On a more personal note, if I never had to wash another dish in my life, I would be all too happy. Same goes for rinsing/loading/unloading the dishwasher. There are days when I consider investing in the paper plate industry and buying an industrial-sized case at Costco. That’s right, I hate doing dishes! If it weren’t for my eco-friendly daughter that has us consistently recycling, nope, I just can’t see the point of adding to the landfills because I don’t like doing dishes. If it’s just my lunch, I’ve been known to just use a paper towel for a sandwich. Eliminate the need to wash more!
You were probably expecting something deep and earth-shattering, but nope – just the dishes. I don’t think I could get away with serving a can of peaches in the can, or persuading the hubs to just use a napkin instead of a plate. . . never going to happen.
Maybe when I have the resources to hire a personal assistant, then I can hire a maid as well!
Everyone has their dreams, mine in this area are pretty simple.
