You Click Whenever You Get Close to It

“It’s a reactive thing, like a Geiger counter; you click whenever you come close to whatever you were built to do.”

— Stephen King

Tell me about a time when you knew you were doing exactly what you were meant to do. Describe yourself doing that thing and show us how it felt to do it.

  1. I always hated to write, starting with my mother’s angry insistence on writing thank-you notes for Christmas presents and continuing through college term papers. I never received less than an A on any paper. I thought I was just lucky and it never occurred to me that I could write.
    Now, at age 89, I am attending Shut Up and Write groups three times a week. I still don’t like to write, but I feel good when I am writing! That doesn’t make sense, but that’s the way it is. Perhaps, through SUAW, I can find a way to enjoy the process! This is the first one of Laura’s prompts I have responded to. The prompts are so thought-provoking, but I don’t want to write! Thank you, Laura, for your encouragement. I finished the first draft of a memoir at your retreat in Bolinas!
