Pros and cons

Writing, as in everything, has its up and downs. Pros and cons.
Here are a few of my thoughts on the matter.

I love it
Making other people (albeit fiction people) do my!
There's always a happy ending
Fan letters
Bestseller lists
Name recognition

Redoing my damn web page. (Yes. This IS a pet peeve. I need enough cash flow to pay someone to torture themselves with html and jpg. *sigh* That is SO not my forte. Nor do I wish it to be.)
Pressure. (Yes. Usually my own. The self-imposed GOTTA GOTTA GOTTA I give myself.)
The sagging middle. pffffffffffftttttttttt
Redoing my damn web page. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
Squeezing a blurb into fifty words

And you?
Which is magic? Which is mayhem?

Can't think of too many pro's right now. excuse to buy esoteric books.
An excuse to buy cool software
Sex scenes.

seeing an email from your agent. If it were an offer, she'd call, she emails if its a rejection.
When every word on the screen is crap for the day.
Giving up other activities to spend more time writing.

Greatest Pro: seeing "THE END"

Greatest Con: definitely sagging middle
