I’m going to be straight with you.  I’m happily married and the H and I have a half dozen kids.  That said, I write for two reasons.

Number one, I get to finish it. Dishes are never finished.  Laundry is never finished.  Writing … well, it’s hard to stop editing sometimes, but eventually I get to call it finished.

Reason number two is that, although I LOVE my life, the worlds I create when I write offer an escape.  I get to choose when and where.  I can control the weather.  I get to pick who lives and who dies (insert evil cackle here).  And, frankly, my characters – unlike my kids – actually listen to me … um, sort of.

In a world that exists in beautiful, utter chaos 90% of the time, it’s nice to have your own little place of respite.  Fiction is mine.

  2. As far as bugs or anything goes – hubby doesn’t like them either but he gets the look from me that says “I don’t care. You the man here. It’s your job!” There was a snake in my garden on day and he had to sharpen the shovel when he got home. He couldn’t stitch the snake back together. Need I say more? lol

    • LMAO! That is HILARIOUS! Before my kids were old enough to do it, I used to shake and cry when I had to kill a snake. Now they do it with such zeal I wonder about their mental states sometimes. Talk about murderous glee, and I just want to throw up, LOL.
