Sorry for the late post today. Kid D is sick and that slows everything down.
Anywho, if you haven't entered my contest for a fabulous Barnes and Nobel gift card and other almost fabulous prizes click here and follow the directions. :)
Sometimes I wonder to myself about why I write. It goes something like this:
Me: Why do I do this?
Other me: Because you are a crazy person.
Me: Well, yeah, but other than that.
Other me: Ummmm. You like pain?
Me: No. That can't be it. Try again. There must be a reason.
Other me: You sinned in a past life and must pay for eternity?
Me: What? Are you sure you're not the crazy person?
Other me: Whatever. You like this, and you know it.
Me sighing then grinning: It's true. Maybe I do like pain.
So, here is my top ten things I like about writing list.
1: I can do it in my pjs.
2: I can eat lots of snacks and say I"m feeding my brain. Yum.
3: People look at you like you are a crazy person. This is quite fun. You should try it sometime.
4: You get to be lots of different people every day. Who would want to be just one? Sheesh.
5: You get to live in cool new places in your mind--all while dressed in pjs and eating snacks at home.
6: Words are delicious.
7: So are stories.
8: Creating is magical, and we all need a little magic in our lives.
9: It makes me happy. :)
10: What could be better than getting paid to daydream?
There you have it. Why do you write, or paint, or create music, or whatever it is you do to enrich your life? What spurs you on in your quest for success?
