Remember the Sarah McLachlan song "Your Love is Better than Ice Cream"?

I was just thinking about those lyrics, especially the oh so singable line "It's a long way down... It's a long way down... It's a long way down to the place where we started from" and how they apply to writing.

I love writing.

Most days it IS better than ice cream.

Some days I need to remember how far I've come, how much I've learned and grown and developed as a writer-- and as a human being who happens to write.

And every single day, no matter what, the love of READERS is better than ice cream.

Thank YOU for reading!

Now who's in for some mint-chocolate-chip? Mmmmmm


  1. Oooh! I haven't thought about that song in ages! And I agree--readers are better than ice cream...

  2. Missed this yesterday, Irene. Happy Fourth, & really I prefer Dulce Le Leche, but chocolate fudge sundaes are also good! I'm glad you like writing, so I can continue to read your books!

  3. Amen to that, Irene! And mint chocolate chip is my favorite flavor, so I'm definitely in!

  4. Taking in the good...always beneficial. Thanks for the reminder. And you're right, writing IS better than ice cream...and a whole lot more!
