Just Write # 9

Magazines used to sit in my house and collect dust. I'd have 42 issues of one magazine and by the time I got around to reading anything, it was old news and old styles and not even interesting anymore. I quit getting magazines for awhile. I bought myself a subscription to US Weekly at Christmas and Elizabeth and I both enjoy that one. We usually have it looked at and sideways and back and forth by the end of the first day it's at the house. I get Time as well but only until November when my subscription runs out.

If a magazine catches my eye in the checkout line, I might buy it. That's how I usually end up with a current copy of Readers Digest and the occasional cookbook like magazine. I love a good recipe; now if I would just actually cook them we'd be getting somewhere.

I can't walk into a library without getting a book. I can only recall a few instances where I went to the library and didn't get something. Most of the time, I walk out with an armload of books as if the library isn't going to be there in a few days when I'm ready to go back. 

It's an illness but one that I'm content to have.

This is Just Write, a free-writing exercise in which you sit down with no writing agenda, no pushing for a theme. Watch the details of your stories ignite their own meaning from within.
