I think my writing career has given me the perfect opportunity to cross train for another career I've always wanted to try my hand at. I wanna join the circus! I can sit as patiently as any elephant...believe me I know because I sit a lot. Waiting for an idea to come. Wondering if today is the day my muse will create a masterpiece. Watching the mailbox and hoping today there will be an acceptance letter in the mail for me.
Maybe they would have a place for me as a balancing act? I'm pretty good at juggling a full time job, home life, a budding writing career, and maybe a little ME time so I'm sure I could do her job!
And if it's jumping through hoops they need me to do...I'm there! I'm already jumping through them as I make sure I've dotted all my I's and crossed all my T's whenever I submit another story to someone. I might have to learn how to do it without catching my tail on fire, though.
The circus can be an exciting career choice. So can writing. I figure it's all what you put into it. I just don't want to end up like him...
