World Book Day happened on April 23.
I think most book lovers celebrate every time they pick up a book with eager hands, wait with impatience for a moment of quiet when they can immerse themselves into worlds unknown, travelling shoulder to shoulder with perfect strangers.
I have heard people say writing is a lonely profession. Not for me.
I don't find it lonely sitting day after day, at my desk, meeting strangers, offering them fictitious lives and observing if they want it or not. If they do, good. If not, that's good too. Then I can be nosy and offer advise and write up a new life for them. See how much fun it is to manipulate characters? And, that's why I am never lonely when I am doing what I like best.
No plush office for me...just a bit of space in our living room. That's all I need to write stories and poems and blog posts.
Keep well, my friends.
to my blog where I publish my personal essays, art, photography, and insights on writing, my culture, and life.
