Happy Thursday everyone,
Yesterday, I was reading a post from one of the participants in the A to Z challenge. Someone asked this question.
What beings you joy?
So here is my list of the things that bring me joy right now, at this moment.
Being able to spend my day writing brings me more joy than I can ever express. I love digging into the lives of my characters, watching them evolve. It constantly surprises me where the story and my characters take me. I have the basic idea/outline for my work in progress, but I love how the story actually develops a mind and heart of its own as I’m writing it.
I take such joy from my kids who reach out to me every day. They are adults now, but they seem to really enjoy sharing their life with me.
This last joy took me totally by surprises ... and made me eat a word or two. So here goes...
I find joy in connecting every morning to what I call my virtual world. That’ right, I said it and it’s true. I fought the whole social networking thing for a long time. But slowly, it won me over. I meet and interact with such wonderful authors every day. I have never met you, but you have had such an amazing influence on my writing. It is such a joy to interact daily with my writing buddies on Facebook, my on-line critique group, Letheladies, my tweet buddies on Twitter, and to all of you in this amazing A to Z blog challenge. I have learned from you in so many ways. It’s made my life richer, the world smaller, more intimate. We all have the same needs, wants, struggles, passions, joys. Just knowing there are others like me out there makes my life easier.
So what brings you joy at this moment in you life?
