Are You Havin' Any Fun?
For another version of this song that I guarantee will leave you smiling, check out this rendition by the "Washboard Wizards" (at the fair!) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ml50GQce56I
Every once in a while, it's important to take a deep breath, look up from your rush to deadline, your haste to edit, or your desperate search for the next great idea and remind yourself, "Hey, this is a great gig." Because as writers, we get to work in the realm of ideas. We get to noodle around wherever our imagination and the research lead us. We get to exercise our creativity and, when things go well, share it with an appreciative (mostly) readership. We're living the dream that burns so brightly a million hopeful hearts.
It's only fair that every now and then we take a few moments to grin over our good fortune before returning to the grind.
What are you grateful for today?
