I work all day, then come home to animals that need fed, basic household chores, then dinner.
By the time all of this is over it's pretty close to 8pm. I'm tired and know that 6am is going to come around faster than I want it to, but my mind is reeling with characters screaming to get their thoughts on paper, so I write.
Sometimes I'm up to 2am, and I know I should get into bed but I can't.
I Love to Write.
It's my addiction and I'm enjoying every minute of it.
In my spare time I'm either reading, or writing. I carry a notebook with me, and find myself jotting down ideas all day so I can put them together at night. Some people find me crazy. They know my life is busy. I hold down a demanding job, live on a busy farm and help take care of my sister who has MS. I have very little time to myself, but I can't help it.
It's my stress relief and makes me smile.
I am truly living my dream.
Find what makes you smile and live your dream. Even if you don't feel your life has anymore room for anything new, do it anyway. If it's what you want to do, it will fit. Everyone needs something to look forward to even if its just a few minutes of peace to make them smile.
My day is coming to an end, and my characters are begging to come out and play so I'm off to put the clothes in the dryer, the dishes in the dishwasher and make my cup of coffee. Then I'm going to sit in front of my computer, smile wide and start to type.
My drug of choice, story telling.
Until next time.
