Life would be boring without writers (or being a writer).
I was in bed last weekend attempting to catch a few extra minutes of shut eye when an idea came to me (that and my cat Ellie has this constant need for attention).
I thought about what it would be like to be in my husbands head for a day. After I said it I realized what I'd be giving up.
Yes, there would be silence, no headaches, no working out character problems. A blissful day off. But let's say my husband and I swapped. The number one thing he doesn't like, is the feeling of being overwhelmed (doesn't everyone?). I'm on constant overload, thinking about what social network site I need to check out so I don't lose touch. What to make (or not make) for dinner, the works.
However in my husbands brain I might be MORE overwhelmed. After all he's a numbers guys, always working out the facts, the budget.
I guess all of us are made to have our own brains. Built with our own strengths and weaknesses. Never meant to swap. So since my husband already loves and supports me that should be enough. After all, he wouldn't know what to do in this brain of mine.
So let's leave the brain swapping out of this and just remember that life is truly boring without a writer and I'm happy to be one.
What do you like most about being a writer?
