Thoughts on Writing and World Peace

It's a quick post today. Yesterday, I was quite euphoric after completing my 8K run (doing my personal best) and enjoying a beautiful, sunny day watching the St. Patrick's Day parade in Washington, DC.

So what do I wake up with this morning?

A freaking head cold. Enough about world peace, my wish is to ban sickness from the world. We'd all get along better if we were all healthy and functioning at our best. I know, probably not, but it's a nice thought, isn't it?

Today, I am featured on WriteWriteWrite. I was first introduced to K.S. Brooks through the Maryland Writers' Association. She's an award-winning novelist, photographer, and poet and she still manages to give so much back to the writing community. Check out my interview here.

A brief excerpt:

What is your favorite part of being a writer?
Finding the right words. So many times I know what I want to say, can feel it with every fiber of my being, but I need the words to reflect that intensity. When I find the right ones, it’s a wonderful feeling.

In addition to all of the above, K.S. is also the Co-Administrator for Indies Unlimited, a site "celebrating independent authors." Please take some time to check it out. For my writer friends, specifically check out their Submissions Page.

I hope everyone is having a fabulous Monday!

The right words - isn't that the truth! Until you unearth them, the firestorm rages in the brain. Sometimes they come to me at 3AM. No matter - I'll take them.

I hate the cold for you, particularly since you all just got well...
