Writing Addiction Symptom #3: Dirty Diapers and Complaining Husbands
• Dirty Diapers and Complaining Husbands
Oh you know the feeling. You make yourself a cup of Joe, get back to that switch button, and for the next 8 hours or so (hey, that’s pretty modest), you’ve taken yourself a mini vacation. Where are you going? Who knows, somewhere between Character Development and Turning Points; your only problems are: screaming kids, annoyed husbands and microwaved dinners. You’ve been at that computer so long your one year old knows what a Setting is, (and it’s not from the soggy Wheaties in his diaper either). Your husband has brought over his annoying friend for company (yes, the one you can’t stand), and your nine year old has painted her face pink and red at your distracted consent. Now, I want you to pay attention now because this is important:
The writer herself (yours truly), has neither one year old or nine year old and what you’ve just read is a list of completely made up events but, the fact that you’ve spent the last two minutes glued to these words in order that you may verify this condition is reason enough to count you among the worthy so take a bow, I now present to you the following prescription:
CAUTION: If you’ve counted my every grammatical error I’m sorry but Grammatical Geeks is for another day and this prescription is not for you.

The Happiness of Seeking Wisdom
Happy is the person who meditates on wisdom
who reflects in his heart on her ways
and ponders her secrets
pursuing her like a hunter
and lying in wait on her paths
and listens at her doors
who camps near her house
and fastens his tent peg to her walls
who pitches his tent near her
and so occupies an excellent lodging place
who places his children under her boughs
who is sheltered by her from the heat
and dwells in the midst of her glory
– Ecclesiasticus / Sirach 14:20-27

Something 2 do
“There is always something to do. There are hungry people to feed, naked people to clothe, sick people to comfort and make well. And while I don’t expect you to save the world I do think it’s not asking too much for you to love those with whom you sleep, share the happiness of those whom you call friend, engage those among you who are visionary and remove from your life those who offer you depression, despair, and disrespect.”- Nikki Giovanni

Writing is something that brings me joy, and that makes me happy regardless of the gain. But in addition to writing, I also like to have a lot of fun, and to inspire as many brothers and sisters as I can through innovation and creativity. In short, I really enjoy doing what I love, and what I LOVE is to engage my readers in games, activities, and contest whenever I come out with a book (for those that remember The Aftermath blog).
That said, I would really appreciate you SUBSCRIBING to this blog to get a better understanding of what this screenplay series is all about and for the opportunity to engage in open discussions concerning the gift of writing itself.
