Notable Quotes

You must keep sending work out; you must never let a manuscript do nothing but eat its head off in a drawer. You send that work out again and again, while you're working on another one. If you have talent, you will receive some measure of success - but only if you persist.
--Isaac Asimov

What's Fun?

Writing-I have to write something everyday or I go bonkers. (well, more bonkers than normal) I have tried to post some of my prose and poetry, but I am having a hard time posting from my current WIP since it is fiction based on my reality. It is mostly a work of therapy.

Reading-True escapism. I find that I completely immerse myself in the books I read. I can literally (hehe) see what I am reading.

Knitting/Crocheting-Currently, I am knitting more than crocheting. Like writing, I love seeing what comes from each and every new stitch. You'd have to be into fiber arts to guess the inner peace that they bring.

Sewing/Quilting-I don't get time or space for this much. But, sewing in all it's forms is almost as zen as knitting.

Working-Yes. I enjoy work. I could not imagine my life without it. I am a CNA. I get a better deal than most nurses. I get to make a difference and have that one on one time. I am even more fortunate to be a shower aide. I get a half an hour to an hour with every resident every week to primp, groom, and otherwise spoil them. All the while, we get to talk.

These are just some things I do. Spending time with my family among other things should be self-evident.

So, what do you consider fun?

Writing - When I'm not actually writing, I'm thinking about writing. It's more than fun; it's an obsession and a compulsion. It slice, it dices, it juliennes...

Gardening - This is my Zen practice. When I'm working in the garden, everything else goes away for a while, and I can be at peace.

Reading - Anything, everything, any time. When I was a kid, I read cereal boxes.

Watching football on TV - There's just something about large men beating Hell out of each other that appeals to me. Probably a catharsis of some sort...
