Happy Thought

Real Living asked me to write a home story for their April issue. It was nice writing again after so long. Ever since I became editor in chief, my job has entailed mostly...well, editing. I've written a grand total of one long feature for GH (although I've rewritten a number of things, and I often have to come up with cute little blurbs), so I relished the process.

It was a rush article though, so I couldn't do much relishing. But even the limited time was enough to remind me why I love writing--about homes, in particular. I missed playing around with words in my head, looking for the strongest verb, the most apt adjective, and the best arrangement to produce the rhythm I'm looking for. (Writing really is done by ear.) I know I could have done better if I had had more time, but I think I did OK. After I submitted it, I saw my former boss, who said, "I miss your writing. 'Yung no editing required."

That just made my week.


  1. Congrats!! And good job. :) I hope I will be good in writing as you one day. :D

  2. Congrats and true, writing is such process -- looking for the right word. The best word :)
