Three Pie-in-the-Sky Writing Goals

The Tick Weapons Lab Avatar

I may be a pragmatist (though that moniker is already taken by the Practical Meerkat) but there’s no shame in dreaming. Here are three of my pie-in-the-sky things I’d love to happen some day. You know, besides becoming that novelist who owns a multi-million dollar franchise. (Yeah, there’s only three today… I have several, but I’m playing around with the first two as we speak… ) First? Publish an official Hellboy story. Second? Publish an official Star Wars story from a Sith’s point-of-view. And third?

Listen to Christopher Walken read one of my stories. (Second on my list would be Gabriel Byrne. You know, *if* I had a choice. :D) For a taste of what the actor sounds like, listen to Christopher Walken reading Where the Wild Things Are.

Hat tip to Brain Pickings for alerting her readers to this little gem.
