A book a day keeps boredom at bay.
I started writing, winning a few local contests, before finishing grade school. As a kid left to my own devices for the majority of my childhood, I spent most of my time living in fantasy worlds, reading fiction and creating stories of my own. Even to this day, I enjoy losing myself in a great book to help with the stresses of everyday life. Plus, a book is a great companion for all my work travel; I currently work in the motorsports industry, where I spend a good portion of the racing season on the road. With flights across the continent every other week with layovers, I always have my Kindle and a couple of book stored away in my carry on as traveling companions.
