Write Well Wednesday: Monastic

EEP!  I completely flaked out yesterday!  Sorry about that, Ladies and Gentlemen.  Here's yesterday's post.  Today's will be up in a few hours.

Monastic

Today's word reminds me of my life as a writer.  I haven't taken a vow of spirituality or anything, but in some ways I feel like dedicating myself to a book is like taking on a new religion.  The characters are my gods, the world is my temple, and I submerse myself in it and think about it non-stop until my piece is completed.  Very often I become like this word, shutting myself away from the outside world so that I can dedicate myself to the novel.  Enjoy today's word!
