I’ve done the work a full-time job and write every other minute of my life thing. Then I did the write full-time, bartend part-time. Then it was write all the time– which is more than full-time. ;) Now I’m working full-time outside the home again, and attempting to be a Weekend Writer.
The thing is, in theory I’d love to come home form work and then write fro a couple hours each night, but I just can;t do that. Not yet anyway. Right now the day job is very physical, and normally that would juice me up, but after being so unphysical for the past couple years my body really needs an adjustment period. I thought it would be okay because hey, my body can rest while I sit and write at night, but uhmm, it’s not really working out that way. For the last week I’ve come home form work and pretty much collapsed onto the chair and either read, or watched T.V for a couple short hours then crawled into bed. So, with my two days off in a row right now, I’m turning myself into a Weekend Writer. I actually think this might be perfect (if the day job continues to give me my days off in a row)
It’s work time, and relax during the week. (reading at night is awesome!) Then now, I catch up on all my writing stuff. So…this is the plan, I will let you know how it goes, but I’m thinking positive because some fabulous opportunities have already come my way, and hopefully I’ll be able to share more later.
For now, I’m gonna leave you with a cool quote I found:
Boy meets girl; girl gets boy into a pickle;boy gets pickle into girl.”
