Dreams of a half-baked writer. No pun intended...

Why do I love grease and sugar?  Oh how the swirls of pink frosting on that little cupcake call to me as I press my nose to the window.  Sigh.  I guess I will always be addicted to the delicious aromas that call to me as I pass a bakery storefront.  You know what I mean, that wonderful smell greets you as you stroll down the sidewalk.  You quickly pick up your pace determined not be tempted, and just as you get to the entrance you swerve making a sharp turn and enter...a little piece of heaven. Oh...I'm that drool running down my chin.  Excuse me while I wipe that off.  That was a little embarrassing.

Okay, so really, I'm not half-baked as the title suggests.  Maybe a little...ditzy on occasion.  Thought I would clear that up.

I am a writer.  Just something I decided to be one day. Well kind of. <wink> I love writing in such a way that it creates a clear picture for the reader.  It's the most fun kind of writing and one of the most challenging.  For many years now I have had the desire to write.  I kept telling myself I didn't have the skills or the time.  Sound familiar?  Then one day a door opened for me.  Looking back now I know I was being nudged all along the way.  At the time I just didn't see it.

Maybe you have a hidden talent tucked away somewhere.   It's okay, we're all a little rusty to begin with.  Just dust it off...and start honing your craft. Learn all you can.  You're on the computer reading this...the world is at your fingertips.  The web has so much to offer people.  It's a giant library at your disposal.  YOU ARE NEVER TOO YOUNG OR TOO OLD TO LIVE OUT YOUR DREAM.  So what are you waiting for?  Get out there!  You can do it! (Did I also mention I use to be a cheerleader?)  Come on, move yourself.  Get out of that chair of apathy.  You know what?  You'!!!!! (smile)
