Can you believe they took this in only one shot! Wow.
(If you read this last week, sorry. Blogger posted it early for me. Gotta love that automatic time and date thing --especially when you make a mistake. *blushes*)
This is how I feel about writing.
Lately my radio station has been playing this song every morning when I'm stuffing dishes into the dishwasher. Every time I hear it, I feel the desire to sit down and write.
A few weeks ago a friend and I were talking about being writers.
We both agreed that if you are going to be a writer, you have to love it.
Most writers don't make a ton of money. Writers spend hour after hour alone with their characters instead of working side by side with co-workers (talking about the latest event that happened last night on the TV - unless they are talking to their mc's). Writers re-read/re-write their words about a million times, analyzing each sentence to make sure they are golden; this is a tedious job.
So why am I a writer?
Is it because of the desire inside? Because I know if I quit, I would regret it. Because there's a "burning in my heart" to get the words out?
Um...yes. That's it. That's why I'm a writer.
