I'd Rather Be Writing
Yesterday, I went to my RL group and someone asked me if I was tired. It was 9:30 in the morning and no, I wasn't tired, but I was distracted. On my eighteen minute drive over, I'd come up with possibly the last page of my book. And even though I jotted it down when I got there, I still would have rather been somewhere else working on my book.
See, I've had an activity-filled two weeks. Between working (retail management), Christmas, baking, shopping, bagging, and helping my mom move across town, I haven't had an opportunity to do little more than jot down a note here and there.
Normally, this would be an inconvenience, but now that I figured out my ending, I feel the writing pressure cooker steaming underneath it all.
I am constantly in tune with my characters. As I'm driving, characters are conversing, and I have to make notes at red lights. I fall asleep thinking about the next chapter. On my work break, I do edits as I eat.
I need a good block of time to write.
And today, on my scheduled day off? I'm working at another store. There's a sudden shortage of management (firings do that) and I have an opportunity for O.T. What with Christmas, January birthdays around the corner, and Jordan's medical bills, I can't afford to pass it up.
All I know is I'd rather be writing. Which just for the record should be made into tee-shirts for all of us.
