A good writer is basically a storyteller, not a scholar or a redeemer of mankind.
---Isaac Bashevis Singer
I have been out of the writing loop for far too long. And it amazes me every time I return to it: I become so relaxed, I am almost boneless. I unwind like a skein of yard someone is tugging on the other end (perhaps it's God? lol). How do I always forget this?? The longer I am away, the more tense I am, the more likely to snap, the more grouchy. You can probably tell just from speaking to me for a few moments how long it's been since I've had a chance to write.
It's funny, because I went from tentatively telling people I wanted to write a book to incorporating writing into my lifestyle, referring to myself as a writer (it's a mental thing!). So much so that at night, as we're climbing into bed, if I am crabby and complaining about my day, Charming looks at me and says:
Did you get any writing done today?
Back to unkinking my mood....
