The little snow globe on the left has been my writing inspiration since... pretty much always. When I'm having trouble with words, looking at it helps somehow. On the right is my present from Spousal Unit this Christmas: a perpetual Snoopy calendar that says, "Happiness is a new day." I love my little Snoopy collection.
Why is he my favorite? Well, he can do pretty much everything. He's a writer.
He's a scout leader - a beagle scout, if you will.
He's the Easter beagle.
He's a World War I flying ace, chasing down the Red Baron.
If there were more people like Snoopy in the world, the world would be a happier place, and we'd get a lot more done... maybe. Because we'd have a lot more spontaneous dance parties, too.
