Would you rather have one wish granted today, or three wishes granted in 10 years? I’m pushing 60 years old. I’ll take the one wish today, thank you. Hopefully my age brings wisdom, so one well-placed wish will suffice.
One Wish Granted Today
All I really want is some financial stability. There are no problems in my life that could not be solved by the proper application of money. A comfortable house, a dog or two, a steady business. Travel, when that becomes a possibility again, to visit great museums, zoos, and restaurants. Health care, a new wardrobe, and a wall full of books. Just hit me with enough money that, after taxes, I can live a modest life without having to worry about financial hardship.
The Merry Writer is a writer’s game on Twitter run by Ari Meghlen (@arimeghlen) and Rachel Poli (@RPoli3). Each day there’s a new question, and each month there’s a new theme. In these posts I expand upon the answers that I’ve posted on my Twitter.
If you get anything out of these blog posts, consider buying me a coffee. The money goes toward rent and groceries, to offset the time spent blogging instead of doing paying writing work. And please, leave comments, share with other people on social media, and help to spread the world.
