Girls Write Out
Sunday, January 16, 2011

Hubby and I were driving downtown yesterday. When the light turned red, we paused by a tall building.

"Look, hon," he said. "A corner desk."

Several floors up, there was a corner office that had windows lining both walls and, sure enough, a desk sat in the corner.

"Wow, great view," I said. Okay, it's not New York, but still. Someone has a nice view of our new minor league ball diamond.

"I'll bet there's a lot of daydreaming going on up there," Kevin said, probably thinking about the lack of productivity the view inspires.

Know what I'm thinking? I'm thinking that corner desk would be a great spot for a writer. Not only is daydreaming encouraged in my field, it's downright necessary. True, I have to get my thoughts down on paper at some point but--let's face it--some of my most productive time is spent staring into space. A passerby would think I'm accomplishing nothing, but really, my imagination is awhirl with ideas. I'm doing the work necessary to write my book.

When the light turns, Kevin pulls away, and I smile furtively. I get paid to daydream. How cool is that? What great perk does your job offer?

A walk in the snowy woods, Denise, yes, you're doing what I love to do. So inspiring. Reading a good book inspires me. Being with good friends inspires me. Watching a beautiful sunset...ahhh.

The chance to sit stealth in Starbucks and create characters from human interaction.

I work in a library, so I get to see a wide selection of media (books, DVDs, CDs) that are available. Not to mention the people watching.
