I realized something huge last week. I love writing.
What? You think I should have already known that? Well, of course I *knew* it, but the realization was more about how writing makes me feel GREAT!
Here's what happened: I had a hard time getting out of bed. The to-do list was long for the day (as it is most days), and I just didn't want to get up and face it. I wasn't depressed, but I recognized something was different that morning. The previous several days, I had hopped right out of bed, excited to get to my computer and continue the revisions that have been going SO WELL! So, that dreary morning, I realized the gloom was rooted in the fact that I would have NO time to write that day. I knew that when I went to bed the previous night, and so... what was the point in getting out of bed?! HA.
Seriously. When I *know* that I get to write for a certain time period, or even snippets throughout the day, I feel more alive and motivated.
I'm in love with writing, and while I don't do drugs or drink alcohol... I found this quote that is perfect for today:
You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you. ~Ray Bradbury
