Writers. We are an odd bunch. It takes a certain degree of ego to put words on paper and EXPECT that people will not only read them but love them and ask for more. We are also peppered with so many insecurities. NaNoWriMo has highlighted a lot of those for me this month.
But I am NOT an Aussie/Kiwi sheila for nothing. So when consumed with doubt about my abilities, the plot, the characters…I listen to this song. Over and over again. And the doubts are drenched in the slow forming smile that grows. It encompasses not only the doubt but the very skin that encloses me. My head starts bobbing, my foot taps, I start singing so loudly Chevvy moves to another room. Which is a good thing…because then the dancing starts. Imagine bouncing, turning, twisting, arms punching the air – JOY !!!
Then the real magic happens and my fingers tingle, my smile hurts my cheek, and my brain bursts with my very own fireworks, right on to the computer screen.
Thank you Katy Perry !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So what ignites your fireworks ? What song makes you dance and sing whether you want to or not ??
