I have a bookkeeping service, and while I am busy with numbers, my mind is creating stories, characters, poems. Writing inspirations weave their way around calculations, financial statements, and bank reconciliations. Usually, I am unaware of the process. I may get a momentary flash of insight that I type or jot down quickly before going back to my work but the rush of creativity does occur until I take a break. That is when all the flashes come together as one bright light.

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
