    Belated thanks, Michael. (The week got away from me – dang I hate when I let that happen.) Great freewrites! Thanks for sharing them.

    I hate it when the math is so obvious.
    Here are my two free-writes:

    To call myself a writer I should write every day, sit down and write with a purpose, know what it is a want to write about, write really really well, put my writing out there for reading, have readers who want to read what I write, be inspired, have more things to write about than I know what to do with, study writing regularly

    I feel joy as a writer when my writing leads to discoveries and AHA moments, when I feel the right words coming out that describe that AHA moment, when the connection is there between my pen and true feelings about something, when I see a new connection between seemingly disparate things, when what I write feels unique and not a copy of what someone else said or would say. I feel joy when I come out in words.
