But I’m having a really hard time writing.
I’m pretty jealous of the writers who can do everything else they need to do, then crank out the words.
I can’t write in the evening. I know that sounds like an excuse, but I just can’t do it. I prefer morning. I can do early afternoon. But my brain stops forming words in the evening.
I can make it out of bed at 5 to write in the morning, but only if I’m not lifting weights. Even though I lift in the evening, it makes me sleep so hard that I just cannot consistently drag my ass out of bed at 5 AM. But I need to lift weights for both my physical and mental health.
So I’m making the dollar-dollar-bills-y’all at the fulltime job. I’m reading a ton. I’m writing a few poems a week (because I can write them at work [no you can’t read them]). I’m making ridonk fast progress in my lifting (just in time for pool weather!). And I’m studying chess for at least an hour every day.
Yet I feel like a lazy bum, and I’m feeling desperate. I need to have material ready to go to capitalize on any opportunities that come my way when The Hoard drops in November. I NEED to get this figured out before then, and have a novella or novel or both and some stories ready to go. But when I start to feel anxious, I hole up and shut down.
I don’t even have kids. Kudos to the writer/parents reading this.
Times is tough. $4.99 can buy you almost a whole gallon of gas. Who has five spot to waste on stupid Psychomancer? Not you? Well, it’s free for Kindle tomorrow and Friday! Help me spread the word puh-leeeeeeeeeeeeeeze!
