H is for Horseplay

Why Writing is Like a Relationship

a-z blog Some of the happiest couples I’ve ever seen, have been those that horse around and play.

Play is important, even a preschool teacher will tell you that – pranks, slap-ass, tickle fights, squirt guns – all of that. It doesn’t just let you blow off steam without getting arrested for a domestic but it also makes you think in different ways. Seriously. It helps lay down new patterns in your brain that aide in processing problems and what-not.

How do you horse-play with writing, Katty? You can’t very well play tag with your laptop.

Well, you could, but it would hurt. And probably be expensive, too.

Oh, you meant that question seriously.

What do you think the A – Z Blogging Challenge is? It’s not like we’re getting graded on it. If you prefer something a little less performance-based, there’s always just plucking a random character out of a story and writing a snippet just for them. There’s tons of “story-starter” apps and ideas out there so you could grab one of those and run with it.

Just make sure your smiling while you do it. Otherwise, you’ll just be grumpy and no one, not even the love of your life, likes to hang with a grump.

Check out what other folks chose to blog about today. A to Z Blogging Challenge.
