I'm figuring out how to be an artist, since that's what writing is. I'm a creative person and always have been. Lots of that creativity has resided in my mind, though... story ideas, bits of conversation, plots, remembered dreams.
As I start to get some of those pieces on paper, it turns out that more appear, sometimes faster than I'm ready for. I like it. I like getting back out of bed at 11pm because I just thought of something and I don't want to lose it. I like getting up early before everyone else, making coffee, and sitting down to sift through some journal prompts.
On top of it all, I'm finding more time to read, and branching out into more genres. Reading is my first love and always will be. It's been hard to work that time in over the last few years with a young daughter, but now that she's a reader herself, the whole house is finding more time to read. And you can't beat that!
