Fiction Friday: If I Didn't Write


If I didn't write:

  • I'd have the nicest flowers on the block.

  • I'd exercise enough to offset all the time I spend sitting in front of computer screens.

  • We'd eat real food at our house, instead of whatever's easy.

  • I'd stop yelling, "Don't answer that!" whenever the phone rings.

  • I'd have an actual balance in my savings account, instead of a pile of receipts from writing workshops.

  • The bathrooms would be a lot cleaner.

  • I'd walk my dogs for a half-hour morning and evening, like their vet recommends.

  • I'd shave the full length of my legs, instead of just whatever shows.

  • I'd use my lunch hours at work to take classes.

  • I'd spend more time with real people, instead of ones I've created.

  • This post would have gone up Friday morning, instead of Monday night.


But, really, what fun would that be?

If I didn't write I wouldn't be as productive! I don't know why but for me, if all the pieces don't fit.. none of them do

Keep on writing, Sister Friend! If I couldn't vent my angst or hopefulness in writing I think I would just burst.
