A to Z Challenge: W is for Wish

Ready for today's post in the Blogging From A to Z Challenge? As you wish...

Not sure what the challenge is about? Click here for the deets, or here for my theme reveal. And of course, you're welcome to read my past posts—starting with the letter "A" here.

Also, if you haven't read my "C is for canola" post, you should—you could WIN a set of all 15 of the Superman Duffy graphic novels, signed by the author. (Or scroll through ALL the posts for three other chances to win...)

W is for Wish

Have you ever wished for a genie or a wizard? Someone who could make your dreams come true with the wave of a wand?

One time, I wished for my room to clean itself—but unfortunately there was no genie around to make my with come true. There's actually a bunch of things I'd probably wish for—an endless supply of books, the ability to run faster than Superman, for my first short story to be published in a major magazine...that kind of stuff.

But if there's one thing reading the Superman Duffy graphic novel, AS YOU WISH taught me, it's that I'd have to make sure my wish was sustainable.

What does that mean? Well, it's all great to wish for an endless supply of novels, but where do I keep them? I don't have enough room in my house. How often do I get them? Can I give them away? Do I get to choose what kind of books I'd like? So many factors—but they're important decisions if I want my wish to be sustainable.

Sustainability is important to agriculture producers, too. My grandparents consider all kinds of factors when making decisions for their canola farm, like whether to rotate out crops, spray for pests, and so on. There's a lot to think about.

Don't get me wrong, I'd still like to wish for a genie...but I'd definitely be very careful about what I asked for. If you read AS YOU WISH, you'll see that perhaps "cartoon me" should have done some research before he meets the genie that wafts out of an old bottle of canola hiding in his grandparents's attic.

Interested in reading the book? You know what to do. <grin>

Gotta jet! Tomorrow's "X" post is probably an obvious one, but my biggest wish is that you come back and read it!
