you know that question people sometimes ask... 'if you could have any superpower, what would it be?'
i hate that question. (ok, i don't really hate it. and, ok, i'm usually the one asking it.) but the point is - i never know how to answer it. it's too hard to pick just one! i often fall back on invisibility or supernatural charm, but those never actually feel right.
well tonight, i finally decided.
but let me keep you in suspense for one second while i tell you how i decided.
i have been writing since i got home tonight - a solid two hours. i put off all my chores. i neglected my dog. and right now, i'm even realizing that i forgot to eat dinner.
what do i have to show for all that? ...STILL only one-third of my new ending written.
i already know this week of goals is going to end this way:
BlogChallengeWIN - WritingChallengeFAIL ...EPIC FAIL.
i was thinking about that as i closed my manuscript tonight and said to myself: 'I wish I had more time.'
and i realized it's something i say all. the. time. i don't think more than two days ever go by without me saying, 'There aren't enough hours in the day.'
so i have finally hit on it.
my superpower would be... TO CONTROL TIME.
i wouldn't even need some mega-time-warping-bending-traveling sort of superpower. i just want to be able to freeze time with the blink of an eye.
blink. 6 hours of sleep just became 8.
blink. 1 hour of writing in the morning is now 4.
and i could speed it up if i wanted to too.
blink. that 9 hour work day just zipped by in 20 minutes.
you get the idea.
so, what would your superpower be?
