The Joy of Revising

Friends,

I have only a brief thought for you.

Today, I finished revising the second of three parts that compose my first book. I must say it is such a joy to expand my creative side and write a story that I enjoy making from practically nothing. Sure, there are historical facts and truths that I research for accuracy, but the “meat and potatoes” of the story come directly from my grey matter. This is something I could do for a living, or at the very least a modest hobby, and I know this because of the satisfaction that writing brings me. Knowing I’ve made something that has the potential to enlighten or bring joy to others is something quite special. And I believe that special feeling can only truly be felt by someone who is devoted to their craft. I only hope that in the end I can look back on my experience and see that it was so with me.

So here’s a question for you: what have you done recently (or perhaps plan to do) that not only brings satisfaction to you, but that also enlightens or brings joy to others? Think about it.

-Eli
