Y is for Yearning

Y is for Yearning. That deep longing that resides in all our hearts. I yearn to see a hard copy of my books. That’s been a long time desire. Another yearning is to write a series and see the celluloid version of my stories (I know that’s a bit too over optimistic). But one can wish right?

I am sure everyone who ever writes has a basic yearning to see their books in print. And that is absolutely normal. It’s these deep-seated yearnings that make us move closer to both our dreams and goals.

What do you all yearn for? Any deepest writing desire that has not been achieved yet?

Note: this is my post for the A to Z Challenge. My theme is Emotions and Feelings writers experience.

  1. I don't know if it's a yearning exactly, but I do wish to know more about my ancestors. As for publishing my research, I want to do that for my family but not for the world.

  2. That was one of the best moments of my life--seeing my book in print. Seeing it do well is my next dream...and seeing many more books in print! You yearn to actually know people are reading it and connecting with it once it's published. Maybe the point here is that yearning never ends, no matter what milestones you achieve!

  4. LOL! I'm with Alex...and at the same time, not with Alex. Hollywood doesn't exactly have a great rep for doing YA books justice.

    I'd like to see your book in print too. =)

  5. Sure, it would be a hoot to see my stories in film... so long as I have some control over content. I wouldn't want it to be turned into something I didn't intend.

  6. I know that same yearning. Even after seeing my first book in print, I yearn for the next one and the next. :)

  7. I'm with Alex on this one. I dream of my debut as a movie all the time. Sigh. I have plans for making it a series. I also yearn for my WIP to be picked up by an agent. I have plans to make it a series, too! Lots of yearning!!

  8. I yearn for seeing my name on the cover of a book. The dedication to my mother who was my biggest fan. She's gone now. It was her fervent hope to see me published. Bittersweet. Recently, a fellow writer used one of my photos as a book cover for her newest release. Inside she credited me. My heart raced when I saw my name in her book. I can't imagine what it will be like to see my own. ~sigh~ Thanks for the smile--this is a candid and wonderful post. Good choice!

  9. Hi friends, I am seeing that practically all of us have the same yearning. To see our books published, or get an agent or see our books made into movies. Here is wishing that whatever we all yearn for gets fulfilled.

  11. Yearning... yes. I yearn for many things! Publication is definitely one of them. And once I get the first pub deal under my belt, many more!

  12. Oh yes, that yearning to see my stories on the big screen of even the little screen like a Saturday night syfy movie special. Step aside Sharknado.

  13. Yes. I believe all authors yearn to have their manuscripts accepted and see their books in print.

  14. We never stop yearning, do we? If it's not to see a movie made from our novel, then it's for a box of chocolates. :D

  15. I just yearn to be a more caring human. The rest will fall into place. I yearn and I learn.
