Conversation with my eight year old sister from yesterday:
Her: Ya know how sometimes people don't look like what they are? Like, if I just met you I wouldn't think that you were a writer.Gotta love the family support ;) Apparently even my eight year old sister thinks I'm at my computer too much.
Me: Really? What would you think I was?
Her: Um...I don't know what its called. It starts with a G.
Me: What do they do?
Her: They sit and play video games all day. Oh! Geek!
Mostly I'm okay with this, because even though its true that if I'm not at work I'm probably at my computer, my computer time is almost always writing and blogging and networking, which are good things in my mind.
However, sometimes I need a refresher. A person needs to get out and do things, too. Not simply because of my sisters not-so-subtle hint, but I've been thinking about this a lot and talking with some friends about it lately. I've blogged about this before. I guess I'm a little too obsessed with BEING PRODUCTIVE, so a lot of times other things don't feel as writerly productive as blogging and querying and...ya know...writing.
Anybody else feel this way? There are some fabulous things to do in the DC area, and the birds are starting to get obnoxious and the trees are getting green. That is enough to get out for.
But what are your ideas? What gets you out of the house? What are your hobbies or interests besides writing?
What are you doing this weekend?
