1) I get to get rid of these stories inside my head. Writing is the one thing that shuts them up and it's cheaper than therapy.
2) While I can't exactly work in jammies (have to leave to take the kids to school and the sitter) I don't have to wear business attire or nursing uniforms. BIG Yippee.
3) I get to meet other people who finally understand the fact that yes, there are stories in my head and nope, i don't exactly know where they came from
4) I can buy pretty much any book I want, without guilt, and smile at my husband and say, but it's for research!!!!
5) I've gotten to meet some of my favorite writers that I've read for years.
6) I can finally play on the computer all I want and it's justified.
7) I get to meet people who love romance as much as I do.
8) I get to travel as much as I want and can afford, or as little as I want to...
9) I get to bribe friends into giving me early reads...by trading my stuff for theirs.
10) I got to see an excerpt from one of my books in Cosmo magazine.
11) If I want to take off a day or two... or a week...I can.
12) If somebody totally ticks me off, I can pound out my anger on the keyboard... killing them on paper. Nice, neat and LEGAL... without all the moral problems.
13) And last but not least... I love what I do. It's what I always dreamed of.
