It was a Saturday; I was fooling around town…..when I saw someone coming over to me. It was a psychic and she was talking at me. ‘My naaameee is Christina Sayer (ChristinaSayer@yahoo.com) and I can foretell your liffffe…’
I am a Rubber Bandits. After a day of teaching – I like to drag down my hair, load on the red lippy, tear off the carrdie, climb into the heals and blast on Rubber Bandits! (Preemptive note: This band is ironic, no this is not how Limerick people are and yes..even though I am a teacher I am allowed to have a sense of humour out of class!) Oh and yeah…I do sing along in a high pitched voice!
Anyway back to the point. I was at a psychic and she asked me if I was famous! ‘Whhha? Like, no…I mean, I have a Twitter account…but sure that doesn’t count?’
She smiled and said that no it doesn’t count. She said she saw success and victory all around me, a happy life near a train station and fame…..
Here is a tiny bit of what she said:
You will go on to study a masters. TICK
You are getting married this year. TICK
You love to learn and are very career orientated. TICK
You love teaching but I can’t see you teaching for long….. TICK (wait…what?)
And you are going to be a famous Romantic Fiction writer….this year BOOOOOM
It wasn’t the famous part, or the writer part or even the teacher part…but the genre part! I have written a YA book and a middle grade book. Both of which are being left to age for a while. And here I was being told that I was going to change genre completely and then get a book deal and become famous. Say whaaaat?
So, there you have it. I will be a famous romantic fiction writer, this year! And here’s the rub; I have been to psychics a few times before, OK…a lot of times, and most of what they said came true! But as the mammy says, ‘everything tastes better with a pinch of salt!!’
Right, I’m off. I need to do a bucket load of research on rom-com fiction, suss out agent du jouir Sheila Crowley, oh and season my future book dreams with salt!
