    • Managing Editor at The Sun magazine.
    • I would work for a magazine, specifically, "The Sun". I fell in love with this magazine years ago for so many reasons. One is that they don't take any advertising. They've been looking for an editor for at least a year now, and I've wanted to apply with everything in my being. The fact that I'm a nurse with two Bachelor's Degrees in non-writing fields does little to deter my imagination. I think about the building, probably a southern Victorian-style house, working with amazing writers who would bring out the amazing writer in me. Uprooting my whole family to North Carolina - whoosh, no problem. My dreams would carry us all through it. I'd spend my days basking in literary light, dancing through the days with delight - excited to go to work each day and never wanting to leave. (okay, that last bit is even unrealistic for MY dream). Sigh. That's my ideal job. It actually exists (the last time I looked) and I have none of the on paper skills I need to apply. I could never uproot my family, but it makes a fine dream as I prepare to go to my insane nursing job where staffing is always a crunch, and the patients are more demanding than a hundred mother-in-laws (the stereotypical type) on crack. Sigh. What a lovely prompt.
