Musing 11 - A Quick Muse


Have you ever wondered what you’re supposed to be doing?
I don’t mean just for one day, I mean life in general.  You stop one day and ask yourself, is this what I’m supposed to be doing?
I guess there’s no real way of knowing.  For example, sometimes with the strict Christian upbringing I had I wonder, should I really be writing erotic fiction?  But the thing is I love doing it.  Well I love writing period and since I’ve been published and people read my work and say they like it, I like to believe I’m good at it. 
I guess I shouldn’t worry over it.  There are a lot of things where I wonder, is this what I’m supposed to be doing?  But I suppose if it’s not we all come to know it soon enough.  Besides there’s no way I’m giving up these B&N chocolate cupcakes and their White Chocolate Mocha Frappuccino which I just discovered today.
So I’m going to continue doing what I love until the Powers That Be tell me different.
Still nothing much new on the shelves.  I still await the day when we can see our works somewhere in a section of our own.  It’s bound to happen someday.
I hope everyone is enjoying their day like I am.  With the exception of running up on a curb while making a turn in a parking lot (and having a pedestrian look at me like I was insane) it’s been a pretty good day.  Take a moment and enjoy it to.
But still work must be done.  I have two very important WIP’s that need finishing so I’m going to snap to it.
Peace
CJ

Oiye! You went up a curb? I have to ask what was on your mind when that happened :snickering:

But I hear yeah on thinking about what you're supposed to be doing. I think about it daily for years ahead and not daily. I'm always thinking, always wondering and always speculating. Great post!

Thoughtful post. We were brought up in church - Steve Church of Christ, me - good ole Southern Baptist. My mom wishes we were writing children books. She is also upset we used our real names. Steve's side - well we don't discuss what we write. We had a discussion one night about if we went back to church would we still write erotic. I'm thinking no. We love to write erotic. So we'll only be walking through the double doors when we visit family and it's expected of us.
Have an awesome day CJ. I said congrats on FB for your new job but I'll say it again Congrats!
