I Distorted the Facts!

I love this. Mark Twain said, "Get the facts first then you can distort them as you please."

I just figured out what the fact is for me. I am writing and I'm writing a lot. Because I'm not getting paid I forgot that I was writing. I just remembered what writing is all about. It's about loving the way that words flow onto the paper. It's about wallowing around with words and not caring about a beginning or an end. It's about being excited and smiling while I'm typing. I'm smiling and I'm excited. Glory Hallelujah!

Boy did I ever distort things. Writing is not about being paid. It's about feeling passionate about stories in my heart and my mind. I'm feeling passionate.

Getting paid again will be icing on the cake!

Grab that feeling and leap over the moon with it!
Then jump over the stars.

Hold tight, don't let it slip away.

Go for it, Jan. :)

Personally I prefer the cake without the icing. Less pressure. But the icing is sweet lol

I used to edit other people's work and occasionally write something in technical format, so it was really WORK. Now I only write for fun, and I enjoy it tremendously, so good on ya for rediscovering your passion!

Hooray for you!! What is it about being able to sit down to write and we truly are free to fabricate it...it's fantastic!! Ooh...and I've been meaning to tell you. I did it...well, I'm going to do it. I'm taking the steps to actually publish a book! I am going to self-publish through a company called X-libris and I'm pretty excited about it. Just finishing up my last story and then I'm going to submit it... Woo hoo! Thanks for all your inspiration. Have a fabulous weekend!

Watched the movie: 'The International' ...a line from it:"The truth does not matter, it is what is communicated that does".

I like cake. I like icing. I like having my cake and eat it too. I have a habit of wanting my neighbors cake also. I'm seeing a theme in this comment. My first blogging experience has me hungry for cake. Going next door cause I'm out of cake. Jan, great picture on your bio. I'm ready to write. Not sure what to write, but ready just the same.

That kind of passion is hard to come by, grab it, hang on, and have fun. The icing will come soon enough.
