B is for Break
So I did what any good wife would do: I convinced my husband to play hookie from work for a few hours and go golfing with me!
It was so what the Dr. ordered. We have a lot going on right now. We are moving this weekend, my 5 year old starts Kindergarten on Monday, and my husband has been super busy. We needed a mini-break.
And it was seriously the best day ever of golf. Since it was 113 degrees outside, we had the whole course to ourselves (except for this duck). We were the only ones crazy enough to be out there. I got the lowest score I've ever gotten, and I hit a 110 yard fairway shot straight into the hole for EAGLE!!! I threw my hat in the air and fell to the ground in joy:)!!! (For those of you who don't know golf, this is good. Like once in a lifetime good!)
It got me to thinking about writing. Have you ever crafted a sentence or a scene so perfectly that you just want to jump up, fall down, throw something, tell someone? Of course, most all of us write with an audience in mind, but rarely do we ever get to share the exhilaration of a moment with a reader. But sometimes that doesn't matter, because it is enough that we experienced it, created it, knocked it in from a hundred yards out.
Yesterday totally invigorated me, refreshed me, and inspired me. What do you guys do to blow off some steam? (Besides writing)
