A thing that gives me a rush is the tension of a book as you read through the pages. Then I get to the end and almost want to re-read the book.

Yea!!!! I am totally LOVING the comments everybody!!!--and we only need five more people, so it's definitely looking like this contest is going to be a success!!!!

I am totally agreeing with all of you who get a rush from reading, and walking around bookstores, and checking your mail for books!!!

@Jeremy--I always go w/my friends on roller coasters and close my eyes as soon as we get on!--It's definitely a rush--But I'm always thankful I'm not dead! ;)

@Kate--I totally wish I could work with you guys!!!--I actually just started working on a couple things (besides my blog)--I know what you mean about the critique groups--I really miss that from college, and I'm still looking for a group ;)

What gives me a rush?

Leaning out the window of my solarium to look down at the ground, 23 floors below.

gabrywrites said...

+1 I did the math. I have 3 nows.
What gives me a rush is a very intense scene in a book, something intense that exhilarating, and the time when I looked down when I was on a mountain, very scary.
