If a genie came to you and asked....

"You can have a book contract, and everything you write from now on will sell and hit the lists, but you have to give up _____."

What would be the deal breaker? (Other than the obvious - family, health, etc.) What is one thing you wouldn't give up to be a bestselling successful author?

I bet you can't guess mine.

Sleep. I couldn't give up sleep.

Give up the practice of my spirituality. No way. I worked too hard to get where I am...no way would I go back!

Yeah, but that's like on the level with family.

I think I'm going to change my answer to air conditioning. Air conditioning and sleep.

Does that mean I don't want it bad enough?

Janice Lynn said...

LOL on the air conditioning & sleep. I'm thinking my answer would be Matthew. I couldn't give up Matthew. Shhh, nobody remind me that he isn't mine to give up to begin with. I'm a writer. I live in a fantasy world. In that world, Matthew wants me. Badly. ;)

Janice Lynn said...

Oh, and your picture makes me think I should give up private practice and go in search of the nearest ER...okay, I know the docs in the nearest ER, so maybe I should go to the next one. ;)

Patrick is too cute--not Matthew sexy mind you, but cute.

MJFredrick said...

LOL, Janice!

McDreamy doesn't do it for me. Yeah, he's cute, but I don't like his voice. And he's such a JERK to Addison, who I love.

Ohhh, yeah, reading would be tough, too. Easier than sleep though.

Chocolate! I'd die! LOL

I MIGHT be able to give up chocolate. MIGHT.
