BEING A WRITER IS A
GOOD OCCUPATION IF YOU WANT THE WALK
BETWEEN THE KITCHEN AND BATHROOM
TO BE YOUR DAILY COMMUTE.
Do you know how many times a day I go up and down the stairs in my town house? A lot. So much so, you'd think I'd have "buns of steel" by now. But, alas, no.
I'm not complaining though. It's still one of the best commutes ever. No construction, no traffic accidents, no snow. I can do it wearing pajamas or shorts and a t-shirt. If I want to "carpool" or need some company, I can grab up one of the tortoises.
But we all know that writers travel so much farther and further than that. We're sitting at our desks but our minds are somewhere in a dystopian future. We're staring out the window but our minds are visiting a murder scene set back in the late 1800s. We're pouring our third cup of coffee of the morning but our minds are watching two lost souls find happily ever after at their neighborhood's new dog park.
Whew! No wonder I'm so tired at the end of the day. I put a lot of miles on this old imagination of mine. But I'm still up for another trip...or two...or two hundred. How about you?
