Oh, the joys of being your own boss. You can work where you want! And it is the time of year that I love to work outside. Unfortunately, last year was too breezy to work outside much. I deal in paper... it's what I do. Rather than chasing papers around everywhere, most of my time was spent working inside. But there were a few occasions when the breeze was so light it didn't matter.

At one point, Skye, Zowie, and I had eight cats living in our home. Six belonged to us, and two were the bestests. Too many cats, for the space we had. But we loved them all! When you can't think of what to write about, look to your pets. Or other animals in the area.

Many people like to write for a cause. Perhaps you're a foodie who wants to help people with little money to eat healthier. Maybe you blog about animal rights. Or perhaps you want to write about environmental concerns.

I love writing. Doing so is an amazing form of expression. But writing nonfiction is only part of what I want to be doing. Fiction is another important form of expression for me.
