Oh, my! So much!
That same night, I was reviewing a fantasy story that was sent in to the magazine where I am an Associate Editor. I’m trying to decide how much I love it. If I love it, it goes on to the Fiction Editor and if he loves it, it goes on to the Editor-in-Chief. If she loves it, she sends that author a contract. So far I am loving what I’m reading.
And in addition, I am working on a new book with a brand new vampire. I have to find a street map of a certain Southern town, I’m not telling which… it’s part of the fun.
All of this in just one night. I am always writing. I am always being the editor. And when no one is looking I fly through a virtual world as a dragon.
I love all the bits and pieces of my life. Whether I’m Grandma telling a story to baby Penelope or working on the code of a website or sitting in the doctor’s office for a checkup and reading a magazine about an awful disease. Every part of my life has become magical, amazing, exciting, and different every day… an adventure.
Maybe it’s time to look at your bits and pieces of your life. What makes it fun? Strange? Weird? Different? What adventure are you on? What parts amaze you?
