"E" is for bursting with Enthusiasm!

Enthusiasm Is Explosive
 Enthusiasm is one of those pregnant words.  It's an "E" word that gives birth to other "E" words like excitement, energy, enjoy, and embark.  For a club, an idea, a committee... to be truly successful there has to be some enthusiasm behind it otherwise it's bound to be flat like another spot on the road.   Sports teams have cheerleaders riling up a crowd; they are important because an excited crowd riles up the players.

Writers need that magic called enthusiasm, too. We need to find our inner chearleader.  Working alone and reading rejection letters has a way of keeping enthusiasm at bay.  Unless, of course, writing is just what you do.  Focusing on the process of writing is what keeps me going, and weird as this may sound, I don't mind being alone.  Still-- I'm happy to go out into the world to live and talk to others.  If I didn't, I wouldn't have anything to write about.
