I’m so excited: I’m reading the manuscript of a friend’s just-finished mystery novel.

I love reading more than pretty much any other activity (besides, maybe, eating), and reading a friend’s work — especially when it’s great — is so much fun. The dialogue! The suspense! The inside jokes! I’m very proud of him for having the focus and discipline to create this whole world.

It has me thinking a lot about creativity. We’ve all got it, but creative endeavors inevitably get pushed off: we think, I’ll nurture that part of myself, but I have to make it through this day first. So it’s inspiring when people in your life say darn those torpedoes, I’m going to do this!

It’s going to be a sunny, fabulous few days out there, folks. Get inspired.
