About twenty years ago, I was sitting in a benefits meeting at work. The speaker was explaining our new life insurance policy and closed with a time for questions.
The woman next to me raised her hand and asked, “While this life insurance policy cover me if I’m killed while in the act of committing a felony?”
My eyebrows when up and all sorts of stuff was running through my mind. I was wondering what does she normally do during her off time.
That was the strangest question I have ever heard during a business meeting.
One of the things I love about blogging is it eliminated the gatekeepers. I can write and publish my own work. I have a chance to let my writing reach an audience. I have a chance to let my writing speak for itself.
Technology has opened up so many opportunities for writers and I am appetitive of that fact.
While you are going about your busy life, don’t forget to spend some time making memories.
- Hang out with family and friends
- Take a walk
- Go to a local museum
- Go to a park
- Spend time in nature
- Drive in the country
- Have a picnic
- Play board games
- Fly a kite
Whatever it is you decide to do, have fun and make a memory.
In my opinion, one of the saddest aspects of American culture is the desire to obtain large amounts of material items. People spend a vast amount of time working to provide these items to their family. However, their continued absence causes them to lose the family they love.
Writers spend a lot of time writing, but that’s only part of the job.
Writers must also read constantly. They should read books, magazines, news articles, fiction, and non-fiction.
Writers need to go out into the world and explore. Writers need to try new things and have adventures. If you spend all your time locked up in your house reading or writing, what will you have to write about?
One major benefit of being a writer, I can turn anything into a work related activity. If I spent the whole day reading, I was working. Going to the movies, museums, hiking, amusement parks, and having all sorts of adventures may be fun, but it is also research.
As a writer, my brain is always thinking about how I would describe everything I see, hear, or do.
I am a writer and I am always working.
