I have a friend. Her name is Ro. She is a former school teacher who now runs a scrapbooking site on the web. She is a wonderful friend, a devoted Mom and wife, and she has something in common with us.
She doesn’t just write. She HAS to write. It’s in her blood. She has an obsession. She is addicted. She shares what we do with a passion.
Here, in her own words, she mirrors what it feels like to be us as writers, trying to stay away from the keyboard to do what we call day to day as REAL life…… but the passion will not leave her alone for long.
The keyboard ALWAYS calls her back.
A look inside the writer’s mind, from Ro:
There you go. I’ve said it out loud. I am obsessed with writing. I am obsessed with learning and absorbing and thinking and considering. And then, once enough information on any given topic collects in its mental file, until it is bursting out of the edges, I feel that if I don’t write about it, I must pull out my eyelashes to relieve the inner pressure I am experiencing.
Thanks, Ro! I couldn’t have said it better myself.
~and so fellow writers, in the great words of another bud to us all here at ARTIFACT, I leave you with his quote ~
