Life Gets in the Way

I've heard this phrase before. Lots of times. And yeah, I get it. Today's the third snow day for our district in the past couple of weeks, and that on top of the fact that February already has lots of vacation days in it, plus that thing where the car window got stuck open the night it decided to rain...and then freeze...and then rain a little, plus projects new and old that are plenty exciting but a little O_o when considered en masse? It could easily get in the way of writing dreams (or insert other dream here but not THAT kind of dream because this blog is PG-13, thanks).

Waiting for circumstances to be perfect to chase the dream never works. So you just have to inject the dream into your life. This explains why my kids play zombie tag, and why a lot of their stories from school have to do with killing vampires, and why I woke up this morning to THIS:




It's INSPIRATIONAL. How can you not write when faced with brilliance on this level? What are you using to inspire yourself lately?

Ahhhh... nothing like a little Brak in the morning.

Isn't it funny how we somehow manage to get ourselves around that pesky life getting in the way thing. I take it as a challenge these days. Love it. :)
