Being a writer is both exciting and frustrating.
Exciting because new projects bring with them a new energy, insights, knowledge. Frustrating in its single-mindedness, needs and lack of sympathy.
Like most writers, inspiration strikes and words flow. Keeping those words flowing is both task and delight.
Dichotomy is the name of the game for wordsmiths everywhere and doubly so for those like me whose internal idea factory runs 24/7.
I hope to see you on the other side of that slippery slope.
I've been a writer most of my life. I just didn't get serious about it until 2008.
That's when I won a poetry contest, decided to start with children's literature and began writing every day with my eye on publication.
And here I am, ten plus years later with the same overall goal, but with a different attitude. But then, attitudes shift with experience and developing interests.
I'm stubborn, mercurial, and interested in anything that passes before me. It's my nature. Patience is easy only in research The rest of the time, not so much. And seldom do I have patience with myself. I'm working on that.
