You see that guy’s face? That’s the face of a man who has been without his children for nearly a week. The house has been quiet and clean, and I have had fewer demands on my time and attention. So, yeah, that’s one happy, relaxed dude up there.
I read a could inspirational quotes today that have challenged me to approach my writing projects in new ways. They said mediocrity comes from playing it safe and following “the rules.” If I want to create something distinctive, I should write for the joy of writing, and damn the fear of following the rules. Anything worth reading was probably a dangerous joy to write. I kinda knew all this already, but the quotes I read today reminded me why I want to write.
