Writers Write. And Garden. And Chase Kids Around. And...

I'm a writer. It's what I do. It's what I love. Writing is my escape from life.

But sometimes, writing is hard work. I'm okay with hard work, but all work and no play makes Emily a spiteful wench.

Not pretty.

So I need other outlets. Believe it or not, I have a life outside of my writing (and kids). So I'm thinking about sharing my other interests on this blog. I garden. I think I might post some pictures from my adventures through my yard. I also run (when I'm not sick or injured), read, and of course: raise my kids.

So how 'bout it? You interested in seeing what my life is like? It could be scary. To be honest, I'm not sure if I'm brave enough. Maybe that's why I'm procrastinating...

I'd love to see some photos of your yard adventures.
My other hobbies are martial arts, zumba, dance classes, watching TV series's with my boyfriend, and reading. Sometimes it's good to have something to do besides writing. And hobbies can help make good writing and descriptions, too.

Good point.
You should post some video of yours!

I don't think there's anything wrong with sharing things other than writing. I haven't yet, but I'm sure I will. My blog is just too new, and writing is my only obsession at the moment. Anyway, I'd love to hear about your gardening, your yard, your kids . . . whatever you think is interesting to share!
