A to Z Challenge 2013 – F is for…

~ FRAGGLE ROCK ~

Roger Ebert and Jane Henson.¬†Two names familiar to this child of the 80’s. They will be remembered for their contributions to the artistic community. I watched ‘Siskel & Ebert’ several years sooner than I probably should have. I gained an appreciation for the moving picture around the same time I knew I was going to be a writer someday. I’m a huge fan of movies and I owe a great deal of that to their show.

In honor of our theme letter and as a nod to another creative influence in my life, Jane Henson, today I think about a time when imaginations ran wild and all you had to to was walk over to your television and turn it on (or for those of us who got lucky and had a clicker. Remember those? Yay for old school retro tech.)

The words to this song echo the push and pull, the ebb and flow of my writing process this month. There’s time for fun, but there’s also time to get down to work. A week into my write-a-palooza, I hope to maintain such a balance so as to avoid burn out and to ensure that, above all else, I enjoy the writing journey as much as the end result.

Dance your cares away

*clap clap*

Worry’s for another day
Let the music play

*clap clap*

Down at Fraggle Rock

Work your cares away
Dancing’s for another day

Let the Fraggles play

Dance your cares away

*clap clap*

Worry’s for another day
Let the music play

*clap clap*

Down at Fraggle Rock

Are you a ‘child at heart’? What bits of nostalgia do you keep close as you travel along your writing journey? Are you a work hard, play harder type of person, or do you stick to extremes? Let’s not forget to have fun in all that we do. Writing’s good for soul. You should enjoy it. Maybe even dance your cares away. *clap clap*
