Thirteen Things I Love About Being A Writer

1. I can sleep in as late as I want.
2. My clothing doesn't have to match when I go out in public because looking at me, no one would guess I write hot, torrid romances.
3. Slippers are appropriate shoes to wear to the store.
4. I can ask people the most intimate and bizarre questions and it's okay because, 'I'm a writer.' 5. Just love it when a reader asks me to sign a book, especially when it's mine.
6. I can write off my trips.
7. I can wander around my house talking to myself and no one will call the funny farm.
8. Living off frozen dinners and take out is perfectly acceptable behavior.
9. I don't have to do housework because I am easily sidetracked and rarely manage to finish anything domestic (Thank God for crock pots!)
10. My vacation time is whenever and where ever I want it to be.
11. Meeting the readers is great fun and I spend most of that time hoping I don't have something stuck in my teeth or a boogie hanging out of my nose.
12. I am constantly amused by all the voices in my head so I'm never really alone.
13. Did I mention the slippers?

Photo of the Week

I took this a few weeks ago when I was in New Orleans, LA. This is Jackson Square, one of the oldest churches in America. The carriages line up for people to hire and the rides are lovely. If you're in the area and want to take a ride, ask for Ms. Diana and tell her JC sent you. :)
