Writing Retreat Weekend

I always joke that one of my favorite expressions in relation to my work life is "sometimes you eat the bear, and sometimes, the bear eats you."

The bear's been gnawing on me a lot this week, so I'm so excited to be at B's this weekend for our writing retreat. We're also celebrating some success we've had with our novels as a part of the Blog Tour de Troops [see earlier posts].

Sometimes I think I get so caught up in promoting and interacting that I forget to go back to my writing--it's like taking a long drink from something really wonderful and then realizing, 'why haven't I been doing this  more often?'

For those who don't know, I do write for a living. My "day job" deals with website writing, copywriting, newspaper articles, etc. My passion is writing fiction.

I'm hoping that in the next few years, I will be able to write fiction full-time.

NEXT WEEK: Unexpected Inspirations...

Dawn, I always remember the title of a book I saw in a library years ago: "Honour Your Passion, and the Money Will Follow". You're on the way, my friend!

You are such an encouragement Micheal! I'll swing by and visit your blog.

You rock and are one of my favorite "peeps."
