I missed last Tuesday's confession, what can I say? I almost missed today.
I don't have a lot to confess or perhaps, I'm a bit wrapped up in the tinsel, or maybe a bit of both. I'm kind of bored with myself these days and I don't want to subject you to my intense blahness... of course, maybe I can spice things up.
I confess tomorrow I'm putting on my most comfortable clothes and going to a friend's house to write the entire day with a few good friends. We each are bringing writing prompts, favorite lines from poems.
I'm bringing white bean hummus, roasted red pepper dip, milk chocolate, bottles of red & white wine, and I'm going to disappear for the day.
I know, as writers we want to publish, be successful, submit our work, seek a larger audience, but honestly, I am most happy when I'm writing.
I'm most happy when I'm connecting with another writer or having a nice dinner.
The publishing stuff, it's nice, but it's not what I dream about.
Seriously, most of my dreams take place at writer's retreats. I'm in a cabin, an apartment, a room and I'm writing. I'm unpacking my suitcase and falling in love with a new room.
Really, I'm a simple girl. I don't need much--- books, a place to write, my laptop, a some quality time / connection with another human, but more than that, is excess.
My favorite places are: in bed, the shower, writing, sitting on my deck and watching the world go by. I'm easy. I'll take a pass on the business cards, on the fast-track career.
Give me my golden retriever and some inspiration. Give me a day in bed. Give me some warm socks, a space heater. Give me hours to get lost in my writing or another person.
Let's buy a few albums at Goodwill and sit on the couch with a glass of red wine.
I confess I hate driving. I must have been royal in a previous life.
I confess I like frosting a lot.

I wore more frosting than what was on my house.
I confess it's Tuesday, but I'm listening to The Cure's "Friday I'm in Love." And maybe I am.
