Thursday Thirteen #6

Thirteen Reasons Why I Like Being a Writer!

1. I don't have to take the bus to work.

2. I can sleep in if I want to.

3. I can go to work in my pajamas

4. I get to be creative and use my imagination.

5. Did I mention I get paid to daydream!

6. The satisfaction of creating something from nothing.

7. I can take a day off whenever I want to.

8. I can skip work to go to a movie matinee.

9. Because of my writing career, I've gotten more computer skills than I ever thought possible. I even have a website, newsletter and a blog. That still blows my mind. :-)

10. I've met tons of wonderful people.

11. Jotting ideas on restaurant napkins is considered working!

12. I actually love going to work every day!

13. Actually having something that I wrote be published into a book that people will read. It doesn't get any better than that.

So far I still have to go to the "day" job, but can't wait until I can one day quit. I love the idea of wearing pajamas to work. :D

So far I've managed to be away from the day job for two years now. I highly recommend it!

LOL It is the best job in the world, Charli!

I don't even think I've got to take 11 steps to get to work, Cat. *g*

LOL I don't know about worship. I'm just glad when a reader enjoys my books. :-)

R.G. ALEXANDER said...

I really like the staying in my pajamas part :)

Daisy Dexter Dobbs said...

Love, love, LOVE this fabulous TT, NJ! There's nothing as wonderfully satisfying and enjoyable as doing what we love on a daily basis. :-D

Hey, and don't forget the part about wearing plastic Target clogs, a tiara and a feather boa and tap dancing to the Broadway tunes playing inside our heads when the mood strikes...

Um...the rest of you writers do that too, right? ...Hello?...

N.J.Walters said...

It is the best job ever, Lauren.

I barely own any "real" clothing anymore, RG. Pajama pants and sweat pants. LOL

Ummmm...I think that's just you, Daisy. LOL I'd love to see a picture of you at work though. :-)
