Guest Post - Do You Have Any Writing Ambitions? by Miranda Dickinson - Blog Tour

I’m amazed that I’ve achieved my original ambition to be an author eight times over now, with one million books sold across the world! My ambition was always for more than five people in the world to read my stories, so it never ceases to thrill me that it's now a reality.

Every new book I write takes my writing ambitions a step further. I like to challenge myself to write a better book each time, trying out new things and, hopefully, creating ever more compelling and exciting stories for my lovely readers.

I’m a big believer in constantly expanding my vision for what I want my writing to achieve. A huge dream I’ve yet to achieve is seeing one of my books adapted for the screen, either as a film or a TV series. It’s my burning ambition to collaborate on turning book into a script. There are a couple of amazing screenwriters I occasionally chat with on Twitter who I would love to write the screenplay of a book of mine. If I’m ever brave enough (and lucky enough) to be able to commission them, I think it would be awesome!

When I was writing Searching for a Silver Lining I found I could really visualise the characters, locations and action, as if I were watching a film. In other exclusives during this blog tour I reveal my dream cast for the film. So who knows? If Richard Curtis happens to be reading...

Thanks so much for reading this blog exclusive! For more, follow my Searching for a Silver Lining blog tour. I really hope you enjoy Mattie’s story!

Thank you so much Miranda for sharing. My review of Searching for a Silver Lining will be available tomorrow, and I also think the book would make a fantastic Richard Curtis film, it really does have all the elements.

  1. I suspect there are quite a few readers who would love to see your books adapted for screen, Miranda. Lovely interview. Best of luck! Thanks for sharing, Rachel. :) xx
