This is kind of an interesting (and fun) place to visit. But the most exciting thing about it is seeing how many of the "43 Things" writing and being involved with books has let you cross off your list.
I counted 23 things on the current list (it changes as people put in their 'things') that I've been able to do because I'm a writer. And yesterday, about every other line was some version of I want to be a writer. Just think, we're living their dreams.
