Dreams {Writers Reveal Prompt}

 This month's prompt for "Writers Reveal" was given to me by the lovely Becky over at Imagine Create Write.

You may have noticed (if you are super super observant and have very little else to think about) that there has been a slight name change since last month where it was called "Secret Subject Swap"

Apparently someone else somewhere on the world wide web had already come up with that name and wasn't overly keen on there being another one. Which I guess I kinda understand but can't help but feel there could very well be enough room on the Interwebs for two secret subject swaps. But what do I know?

Back to my post for now.

After searching 'dreams' at my favourite photo site this was the one that I liked best.
I had 703 to choose from in case you are interested.


Honestly the first thing that comes to my mind when I hear the word dreams is the song by Gabrielle. Well at least the chorus is 
Dreams can come true
Look at me babe I'm with you
You know you gotta have hope
You know you gotta be strong

Being a teenager in the nineties this song was almost like a mantra to me for a while. Actually now that I think about it maybe I can recall a boy and a disco and some dancing....but maybe I am just dreaming as well.

When I first received the prompt from Becky, my mind when into overdrive. The possibilities of writing about dreams seemed endless. After all dreams are something we all have aren't they? Naturally this meant I left it all to the last minute and probably won't take on any of my brilliant ideas over the last few weeks.

One of my current dreams involve winning the lottery and running away in caravan till the money runs out. While I am off galavanting around the country I will be inspired to pen words in such a way that publishers will be frantically chasing after me offering all kinds of amazing deals, which will prevent the money from ever running out and I can be a gypsy kind of gal forever. Only a very rich gypsy, or at least one that never has to worry about making ends meet.

If all goes to plan, this dream (apart from the lotto and book deal, so really just galavanting around the country bit) should come into fruition by July next year. I. Can. NOT. Wait! Mr A is due for his long service next year and we are going to use that time (plus some extra) to hit the road and show the kidlets this great land we call home. Beyond excited is what I am.

Generally I don't hold on to dreams and plans and what have you. I tend to over plan and not actually achieve anything so experience has taught me that as long as I am pointed in the right direction to just go with the flow and hope for the best. A trip of this magnitude though is probably going to need a little preparation to ensure it evolves from just being a pipe dream.


What dreams do you have?

Please take the time to check out some of the other writers taking part this month.

  1. I dream to be a published children's book author, live in a caravan (like you) and travel the world. x

  2. I can't stop dreaming! For myself, my boys, my life...the world....I believe in the idea of being pointed in the right direction and going with the flow - after all if we aren't moving forward, should we really even be moving at all?
    Lovely post x

    1. Thanks Joesfa, you are right what is the point of motion if it is not forward when it comes to life.

  3. What a fantastic dream! I also have the exact same dream prequels about winning the lottery and having publishers chasing after me! I really hope your caravan dream is all you imagine it and more - what a fantastic experience for you all! Have you read the Alison Lester picture books - might be worth looking at to prepare your kidlets for their big adventure :)

    1. I haven't read Alison's books but I have heard of them, someone else suggested them as well so they must be worthwhile. The kids are all super excited about hitting the road. Just so much to get done before then! Lucky there is plenty of time I guess

  4. Love this! And love the idea of a secret subject swap or a writers' reveal or an anything! If it's not too cheeky, can I ask if there's room for one more blogger?! x

    1. Em, I am sure there is room for one more, I will let Emily know you are interested. It is a lovely group to be a part of, anything that gives me a prompt and a deadline works well in my books!

  5. Love your dream of living in a caravan & writing all day :) Can I join you in that one?

  6. Your dream sounds eerily similar to mine! How exciting that you are going to do it! It will be amazing.
    I'm forever dreaming. Won't ever stop :)

    1. Isn't it interesting that all us writers have such similar dreams!

  7. Haha, what a great dream! Mine is to be able to make a living off my writing, so I can have the freedom to travel around the world. It may be a long way off, but I still hope it can come true someday!

  8. How exciting for your trip next year Rhianna! Something to really look forward!

  9. What an awesome dream! Because I am from California but have been living in the UK for over 11 years now, I would love to do that too. I want to take my British husband and all four of my youngest children who have never been to the US with me and travel in a camper van all the way across the US, stopping for them to take in the sights along the way. *sigh* Right now, it really is just a dream though.


Fairy wishes and butterfly kisses to you, thanks for stopping by, it really means a lot, you taking the time so say hi. I try as much as I can to write a reply but if for some chance I don't get to it please know that I always read them.
