I have found that the older I get, the less inclined I am to give up something for Lent.
That might be because the older I get, the less vile habits I have to give up. I’m not saying I’m a saint; I just seem to have reached the age where the worst shenanigans I get up to are…well, I’m literally sitting here, pondering about the last time I got up to any shenanigans.
Anyway, I usually try to do something that might make me a wee bit better. I mean, as long as it’s not exercise. Or visiting sick people with their germy germs. Or…okay, that’s not the point here. The point is, doing something for others.
So with that in mind, I direct you over to the Muffin where I discuss the Cardinal Sins of Writing (And Why You Should Give Them Up).
I don’t know if you’ll be a better person, but you will be a better writer. It’s a win-win for us all.
