#Reverb10: 2.0

December 2 Writing.
What do you do each day that doesn’t contribute to your writing — and can you eliminate it?
(Author: Leo Babauta)

Is this a trick question?

Everything I do contributes to my writing. My writing is fueled by my life and my experiences. I write about what I like, what I hate, but most importantly, what I know. Hell, even television contributes to my writing (thanks, Pajiba!)

If I really have to answer this, my job doesn't contribute to my writing right now. Don't get me wrong - being in retail gives me TONS of fodder for anecdotes, rants and advice columns. However, I can't write about any of it because I don't feel like getting ratted out/fired. (And, yes, people DO get fired for shit like this... ask me or Chez Pazienza).

So, I guess I could eliminate my job, which would also eliminate my apartment, food and comfortable bed from which I write this morning. But that seems counter-intuitive.

#Reverb10 is a project that encourages people to reflect on the current year and manifest what's to come in the next by responding to a daily prompt. To get involved with #Reverb10, click on over to their website and join in the fun.
