"Work is the refuge of people who have nothing better to do." Oscar Wilde. I would love to publish a novel before I'm 50 and be endorsed by Oprah. I have vision-boarded the meeting. I'm a TV journalist who fell into writing, because it's the only thing I really enjoyed doing in the news world. I've never been let go from any job except for one: CTV in Vancouver due to "creative differences." Now, I'm lucky to say that with hard work, lots of creative spirit and determination, I am making a living as a freelance writer. I'm traveling across Canada this summer for 7 weeks, blogging about the country. And I'm getting paid to do it! WOOT. I love chocolate, running, laughing and living life with ferver. I wish my metabolism was really high. I live by the ocean and a park. Homeless people sleep underneath my window, so I often feed them. And the crows.
