My deepest passion is writing. I like the process of writing and editing. Both have their joys and frustrations. It is such a big part of me that to not write is the equivalent to not breathing or eating. Well, those that know me, know that when I do get into the zone so to speak, nothing else exists. What feels to me a matter of minutes in fact can be hours. I forget to eat and I'll sip my tea until I am shocked to find my favorite mug empty (Where'd the tea go? It was just full a minute ago.) The house could be burning down around me and I wouldn't even know or if I did, it would just annoy me because undoubtedly it would be during a really cool part. As you can imagine, this doesn't bode well for relationships. It's not easy to be with a highly creative, artistic, dare I say obsessed person. Thankfully, I have the most wonderful partner who understands when I go into my "other world," the one that is filled with all my dearest and closest friends. I write for her, my number one fan. Besides, when I let her into my world of fantasy, it is the most intimate act imaginable.
