I guess I’m a weirdo. I love sitting holed up in a room, complete silence, soaking up paradise by a computer light while I type. But I haven’t always been this way.
I’m also a natural extrovert. Energized by people, activity, and teamwork, I thrive on action.
You wouldn’t think these polar opposite traits would come from the same person. But they do. And they make me especially qualified to write.
When I get tired and start feeling lethargic in front of my keyboard, getting up to walk or going for lunch with a friend is just the boost I need to stir my creative muse awake.
Equally, when I’m exhausted from crazy days filled with hundreds of people, (my day-job), I love the relief of sitting quietly with my thoughts and characters, while writing articles, blogs, and books.
I live the best of both worlds. As a writer, I need life experience to feed my words. As a human, I need creative outlets like writing to feed my soul. I guess it’s what makes weirdos like me tick. Either way, I’m grateful for energizing activities — and paradise by my keyboard light.
