Yesterday the smell in my kitchen reminded me of my writing life.
Since I was cooking for the week, I was making a turkey meatloaf (loaded with barbecue sauce and onions) along with a “Mexican”-style bean dish — cumin, chili powder and jalepeno, AND an “Indian”-style dish with chickpeas, curry, tumeric, and ginger.
The three distinct flavor profiles mixed together. It wasn’t an unpleasant odor, just a confusing one.
Right now, I’ve got a number of different projects going on in my writing world, each of them their own separate dish. Balancing them isn’t unpleasant, just a confusing challenge.
What about you? What weird mixtures do you have going on in your life right now?
