I write--and edit-- much of the day. And get paid for it.
That does bring me happiness.
But the true joy comes when I can just turn off the governor in my brain and just write. Sheer pleasure.
I'm in the midst of writing sketches for BroadMinded, and laughing as I do. We're meeting tomorrow, and it will be funny to hear the sketches everyone has written.
Am also working on some flash fiction for a website. This isn't quite as easy. To come to completion within a few pages. That's even more difficult than writing a short story--and I'm not too good at that either. But I like to be stretched, and will devote some time to the flash fiction and see how it turns out.
