June #IWSG: I Quit (Just Kidding)

First Wed of Every Month

This month's Question: Did you ever say "I quit"? If so, what happened to make you come back to writing? 

Every. Single. Day. 

My crazy life includes two teenage boys, an eight-year-old princess, and enough stress to fill an entire galaxy. Of course, I want to quit some days. Then I stop whining and plunk down in front of my laptop and begin again. Did I mention I have two teenagers in the house? Now there's an endless supply of writerly inspiration. Paybacks are wonderful.

Writing always snaps me out of my notion to resign. When everyday life squeezes in and knocks me off center, I fight back. I'm a writer. Quitting isn't an option for me. I love what I do.

Don't give up, people!

And don't be afraid to take a break. It's summer for Pete's sake. Get out and live. Life moves too fast. Ferris Bueller, anyone? Oh, boy. 

Found this gem of a waterfall about a mile from my house. Sometimes you just need a change of scenery or to send those kids to summer camp or to send your hubs off on a fishing trip. By the way, he's caught some amazing fish this week.  

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer break!
