IíM SO VERY SELFISH

Can I stop writing? No, believe me Iíve tried!

It interferes with everyday life, like cooking and cleaning and dusting, it even interferes with a normal trip to the jon, I sure hope you know what I mean. "Do you"?
ďMy pen and paper, where is my pen and paper"?
At this point, I need to yell, "Please someone slide me a pen and paper under the door, please hurry before my thoughts scurryĒ.

Iíve come to the conclusion that I might as well go ahead and write. I thought about it long and hard and I decided I would just go ahead. Self got in the way or was it selfishness? Words have been coming at me left and right and in the middle of the night. My eyes pop open and words flow like rivers from my brain. Titles, titles, and more titles! I get the titles first! Someone out there tell me, "Is it this way with you? Are you selfish too"?

Is there any such thing as being selfish with words! Can I be selfish with the English language? Is there enough words for all of us writers, or maybe I should say we writers? I guess Iím being selfish, Iíve never had a selfish bone in my body in my life, but please donít use my words. LOL

Then to beat it all, I found out I was selfish with this darn computer!
ďTish, please donít get on the computer, Iíve got it savedí!
Then she said with a giggle in her voice, ďbut Mamaw you cannot save a whole computerĒ! But Tinsha, it said, ďdo you want to save, and I said, ďyesĒ!

I love those words, I love those aís, bís and cís and sometimes I even use the one's, two's and three's.

I guess Iím going to be the laughing stock of my family, I donít know, maybe Iíll be the laughing stock of the computer world. Iíve expanded my website about three times

I cannot contain the writing habit! Iíve tried! Oh my there goes that exclamation mark again, someone told me that I use the exclamation mark too much. She said it aggravates her. Then someone else told me I use the challenge word too much and I am trying my best to improve on everything! I want to write the perfect piece, I am trying so hard to please. Rhyming words tickle me pink, makes my heart go tick, tick, tick.

Oh please, may I borrow some words from you? I guess that would be cheating, though.
Do you know any new words? Are you selfish with words too? I suppose you are going to tell me to look in the dictionary, and I will have to tell you that I did.

I guess I will have to learn some French or some Spanish or something!

I must learn to control my selfishness especially with the family computer!
Selfishness is not a God like quality and I am trying to be the best that I can be.
I looked the word selfish up on key word and this is what it said: concerned excessively or exclusively with oneself : seeking or concentrating on one's own advantage, pleasure, or well-being without regard for others

So to be the type of Christian that Jesus wants me to be, I have to share those words with the rest of the writers around the world and I have to share my computer with the grandchildren! Iím working on it, honest I am!

And I will keep on working on it!! LOL
