THE SECRET TO SUCCESS IN LIFE
IS TO MAKE YOUR VOCATION
When was the last time you took a vacation from writing? Yeah, that's what I thought. Me, too.
Even when I'm taking a "break," I'm not. I might leave my office - with all the poster boards and index cards and drafts of my latest novel spread around the place so walking is like picking your way through a minefield - but I don't really leave the work. And even if I do manage to put the novel story to bed and tuck the characters under the covers, I'm still not "done." There are flash stories to write and characters to meet and lines of description begging to be written down, even if it's only on the back of my hand.
My "job" is my joy.
