Hello, again and thanks for dropping by to see what I’m up to this week! It’s Week 32 of the #MFRWauthor 52-Week Blog Challenge and today’s writing prompt is “Ten Years From Now…”.
I decided to do this post about where I see myself in 2027 and also about what I predict the world will be like in ten years (maybe we’ll have flying cars, ala The Jetsons!).
Robin Michaela in 2027:
Geez Louise, I hope I’m writing full time in ten years! I’d love to have left my full time job in the dust and be able to sit at my computer, sipping tea and working on my 50th romance novel. Since I’m writing my second romance ebook right now (Baby, That’s the Spirit! – a Halloween romance in the Southern Road Kindle World), this may be a stretch, but I consider it a worthy goal to shoot for.
I’d also like to think I’ll either have a home in the mountains or a home on a lake somewhere by then. I’d be super excited to leave the traffic and congestion of The Big City behind and trade it in for a slice of quiet, peaceful Mother Nature.
Our Lives in 2027: Back to the Jetsons!
By 2027, I’m hoping everyone has self-driving cars, especially if I’m still commuting full-time. I can’t wait for cars that drop you off at the front of a restaurant, go park themselves, and come back to get you after dinner. You could be tipsy and they’ll drive you home, you could fall asleep and they’ll drive you home…they’d get you there as long as you could find and push the icon for your house.
Also, thinking about the Jetsons – how about Rosie the Robot? Yeah, I’ve got a knock-off Roomba vacuum thingy. It does floors (and, not all that well, but that’s another story), but I’m hoping by 2027 to have a robot maid who will do the dishes, laundry, food shopping, mow the lawn, vacuum, make the beds, feed the cats, take out the trash, etc, etc, etc.
In 2027, how about we have a cure for cancer? Or, Alzheimer’s, autism, Parkinson’s, or any number of other diseases? Although, I might be hoping for too much since that’s only ten years from now. I probably should settle for a cure for something simple like hangover-free wine.
Also, by 2027, maybe we’ll have ocular implants that will stream video and television (and Google search results) directly to our eyeballs. And, maybe an author’s books, too…hmmm…
What do you think it will be like ten years from now? Leave a comment below and stop by the other authors on this blog hop to see what they predict:
