When I started blogging again, I did so for the main reason of holding myself accountable for personal growth in a public forum. This wasn't because I thought my life was all that interesting, but because a) that way I can't be lazy or lie, and b) maybe my efforts will inspire somebody else to identify their own areas for self-improvement.
This particular post deals with my need for a non-writing hobby in order to be a well-rounded person. When I worked full time, writing was my hobby. Now I write full time, and because of that, and because I'm involved in various writing organizations and have many writing friends, I tend to talk writing a LOT. That's fine when I'm among other writers, but all work and no play makes Diane a very dull girl.
