Perfect time to be a writer

After a long hot and steamy night (A/C not working ;) ). I rolled over and tried to focus my tired eyes at the clock radio blinking on my night stand; 5:30am. I impatiently slammed my hand on the snooze button. How can something so small make such an annoying sound I thought to myself. I layed there in my bed dreading the thought of having to start my day. I reached over to the nightstand seaching for the TV remote. I rolled over to my side and turned on the TV. I flipped to the news hoping to catch a glimps of the weather for the day. As I sat up I listened to the first news story for the day. I rolled my eyes as the news ancher told me that gas prices rose another 10cents over night.  I sighed at the thought of paying $4.00 a gallon. The next story the anchor man read was about how food prices were going up.  By this point I felt totally disgusted. How are we suppose to survice if the cost of living goes up but pay does not. I tried to tune out the news as I got ready for my day. As I slipped on my shoes I turned up to see the news again. There was no ignoring the next news story. The government shutting down because they couldn't come to an agreement on a budget. As I reached for the remote to turn off the news I sat and thought to myself. With so much drama and negativity in the world I'm lucky to be a writer. A writer can change the lives of many by our timeless stories. We as writers can help everyday people escape the world that traps them. We have a gift as writers, I am glade that I get to share mine with you. Hopefully I can do for others what many writers have done for me; create and escape.
