As my mother has always told me, I'm not happy unless I'm being creative. That creativity doesn't always need to come from my own projects - sometimes it's assisting others in any ways that I can. Call it paying-it-forward, call it trying to be helpful (or call it insane for involving oneself in so many things), but I look back at other's accomplishments and I'm excited for being a small part of it.

I've helped several authors over the years get their books published as I wanted them to experience what I have as a published author. Recently I was talking to another author and he described it perfectly - it's a lonely profession! So having someone else to talk to, bounce ideas, and navigate the terrain is a welcomed connection to break the loneliness. Excited for my friend, Stephen, this week as he experienced that and so glad that I could be involved in any way possible.

These are but a few projects on my list now and as each of those get the imaginary line drawn through them on my mental 'to do' list, I may sigh a sense of relief - but there is also a true sense of joy for all of those involved. Creative people make me smile. Seeing people succeed in that creativity - that's heaven.
