I began to write down the things I was passionate about, and saw I am passionate about many things. I enjoy directing theatre, writing screenplays, being conservative, reading, genealogy, raising my children, autism awareness, and traveling, and I admit I am passionate about the television show Scarecrow and Mrs. King, but other then raising my children, none of these things I do on a full-time basis. Could I write about any of these topics for a year without running out of ideas? No, I realized.
I think of myself as a jack-of-all-trades, master of none (except I do have a Masters degree in theatre), I have always been someone who seems to have her hand in everything, and all at once. I am easily bored and like to stay busy. A friend recently sent me an email telling me, “I'm amazed at all you've accomplished with three active boys and a very busy lifestyle.”
I shrug it off, it's not much. I think I most be ADD. I just can’t sit still. For example, this evening I finished writing a screenplay, and am ready to start another one. Nope, "no moss grows under my feet." I have many skills, but not outstanding in any particular one, and I see myself as a generalist, rather than a specialist.
I am a merit badge counselor for theatre and public speaking in the scouting program, I am currently ‘helping’ write and design a road show for my church, I was just elected a GOP delegate for my county, I am often asked to beta read stories for friends and family. I love to read fan fiction and love to watch movies and television shows specifically those that deal with the genre of espionage. I pay the bills, do the shopping, and I am chauffeur, maid, and cook. I am a home schooling mom and I take children to doctor, dentist and orthodontist appointments and the four-legged children to the vet. I am woman! Hear me roar!
Yet, somehow, I still find time to write. My life is scattered and I like it! And I think my blog will continue to be as scattered as me.
