I'll miss the trips to the lake to throw sticks for the dogs, the afternoon snoozes and binge movie watching. Willow, my yellow lab, won't always have me around to play "kill the yellow basketball, again". But I'm also (gasp!) ready to get out into the real world again. There's drama. Laughter. Conversations. Gossip. Danger (yes, library work is dangerous - books might fall on me or something, ya never know...lol...). Love. Pain. Old grudges. Envy. Hope. Greed.
The "real" world is where the stories are and without it, I'd have little to spark my creativity. Though the ultimate would be working part time so I'd have lots of opportunity to write and travel for authorly stuff, for now I'll enjoy the chaos of balancing writing and the day job. So bring on the alarm clock and bag lunches! Happy rest of the summer...I'm off to buy some coil notebooks and other fun school supplies.
