I know what you're thinking. "Yeah, we're writers. That's why we're here." But I have had a couple of reaffirming experiences this week to share with you. First, I interviewed for an internship with a counseling service nearby and when the director asked me how my writing skills were I could say with confidence, "I love to write! Writing is one of my strong-points."
Later I purchased a book called The Complete Writer's Guide to Heroes and Heroines which lays out different "types" of heroes and what possibly drives them as well as good jobs for them. It was not only fascinating, but it also made me feel great about how I had set up my story so far. The characters fit into these subtypes beautifully and work well together. So that's good to know. I did something right!
Currently I'm working on a very long paper about OCD and it's symptoms, causes, etc. which is not nearly as fun to read or write. If you have any OCD insights feel free to share them in the comments section though. I'm collecting journal articles for it right now and will be spending most of my week writing! Just not the fun kind. Have a great Wednesday everyone!
