the One Where I Equate Getting my Dog to Look up and Sit Still for a Picture...to Writing. :)

Hello my fellow bloggers and writing friends!! 

I know I've been in-blog-visible lately...all I can say is that I've missed you all terribly, *virtual hugs to all*, and hope you'll still stop by and say "hello" to an old bloggy friend? *fingers and toes crossed*

Besides, I had to get this post up that I promised you months ago!!! And I KNOW many of you can relate ~

This writing thing...why do we do it? It's sort of like getting your pet to sit still for picture, isn't it?



I can get him positioned one way, but just as I go in for the pic!! Head turn.


And then, of course, something fascinating, like a bird ruffling feathers in a nearby bush, distracts him...


Try three...another head turn just as I click!


And then after a few (dozen!!!) more tries...the dog's just done.

BUT!!!  With a little patience and persistence...as with all things...in the end, you might just get the money shot:


I love writing and I love my cute, little dog. Why? Because both of these things make me happy. And things that make me happy are totally worth my time and patience.

Happy writing, my friends!!!!  Hope you're all doing wonderfully and find something that makes you happy today!! :)

Hey Donea! Good to hear from you. Yeah, getting a pet to hold still is nearly impossible unless he's sleeping.

Hi, Donea! Good to see you back. Hope everything is going good! I'm taking a bit of a blog break myself... but still writing plenty!

We're holding hands and jumping into the bloggy pool together! Yeah! *fist pump*

I love, love this little post because you are SO RIGHT. Things that bring us joy are totally worth the little extra effort. :)

@ Alex - yes! Too true, too true. As a result, I've got plenty of cute dog pics where Sammy's eyes are closed... :)

@ Alexia - hoping to be back more consistently this time! Have a good blog break and happy writing!

@ Ali - *fist pump back* :) Glad you agree - this life is a pursuit of happiness, after all!

@ Mark - thank you!!! :)
