Birthdays


Yep, today's my birthday. And like every other writer I know, it was a mandatory day off.

We'll work weekends, especially when the deadline is crashing down on top of us. We'll work Sundays, even though that just feels so wrong, somehow.

Some of us, have even managed to squeeze in an hour or so on Thanksgiving day. But your own birthday? Nope. Sacrosanct.

It's a day to put your feet up, watch a movie, read a book, eat chocolate and in general, enjoy just...BEING. On this one day, you try not to think about the current book that's making you insane. You don't write out bills. You don't go grocery shopping. If possible, you don't cook. You don't do anything that isn't pure enjoyment.

And you know what? We're worth it...
