A writer's life is full of twisting turns. More wild than a mad roller coaster--except roller coasters don't have rider's block.
I'm always thinking about writing. It's like a ghost haunting me day in and day out. I love to air out the haunted mansion by recording my characters' demands on empty pages. I love writing--it's my most favorite obsessions I have in my life. But there are times when I need to escape from it, you know?
It follows me everywhere! Into the shower, bed, church (I try to leave it behind at church--but when someone mentions a cool life story or a quote I think, ooh ooh! That would make a rockin story!)
There are times when I feel boxed in. I read several blogs and I came across one that talked about open spaces or holed up--what kind of writer are you? I think I am both. I need an outlet rather than my hobbie--lol.
I need to swim a thousand laps, dance the night away, run 10,000 miles. My mind needs decluttering from too much obsessing. I'm going stark, raving mad!!!! Whew . . . Then I'll feel better.
I know that reading can be extremely healing, but . . . it still involves the writer in you.
What are your outlets from the writing world?
