I am wondering about writing today.

Sometimes I'd like to quit everything I'm doing and focus solely on writing.  Writing is one of my favorite things to do in the whole world.  I've started several books.  Someday I will finish at least one of them.  I've been published in national newsletters and major newspapers.  I love to write and wish I could spend most of my time doing so.

I think this is the route I will take when I retire.  I will make a concerted effort to take all of the many writings I have accumulated over the decades and put them into some kind of great work.  The only reason I'm not doing this right now is because my writing is based on experiences and I am still experiencing life.  As a friend of mine has said, the book is still being written.

If I should die before I retire, I hope someone will take the pains to put together and publish a memoir.  I plan to live as long as the Lord gives me breath.  If I die sooner, I suppose having a book published becomes my final wish.  If I die later, publishing my book becomes my living wish.  Maybe I will start by taking vacations, renting a cabin somewhere away from everywhere and just write.

yep, that sounds about write.
