A to Z Writing

Welcome to the 2014  A to Z Challenge. My theme for this year is why I shouldn't be participating. Thank you to David for writing the post that got the voices in my head working against me.

Writing is what I'd usually rather be doing. While writing blog posts can be fun, it's writing stories that makes me warm and fuzzy inside. Whether is be a short or a novel, I enjoy sitting down and creating something new from nothing, pulling words together to create characters and worlds.

Usually those worlds are some place other than the one we currently inhabit, because really, I'm in that one and I need a vacation from it. Not to mention, it's so much more fun to create problems for someone else and help them solve them, creating order from the chaos than it is to pay taxes, nag kids and be overwhelmed with work (house, yard, and the kind that pays the bills).

  1. I recently heard an author question the idea that we read to escape reality, and that reading becomes our reality. It gives us a voice for our dreams and purpose. Wow, that all sounds quite lofty but it really clicked for me when she said it! I do read to escape at times but it also opens up possibilities; interest in real life activities, meeting new people with common interest in books, stuff like that.

    Glad I found your blog from the A to Z Challenge! Here's mine on Memorable Characters
