Timing is Everything

Looks like my job is back on. I don’t know all the details, but it seems as though we won’t be going out of business any time soon. You think I’d be more excited than I am. A steady paycheck is always a good thing. But, I had kind of gotten into the mind set that I’d have the whole summer free to work on this WIP. Now… Not so much.

Which isn’t a bad thing, per se. I had all last summer to work on a different WIP and I did, it just didn’t work out. It has now sort of morphed into this WIP. Similar concepts and so forth.

I am, however, finding it hard to find the time to write. Or, more appropriately, making the time to work on it. I’m not actually writing it. Just plotting and planning. The second to hardest part.

Beyond the lack of creative ideas (like figuring out the next plot point), I don’t seem to have the energy. I’m not a morning person. That’s more about attitude than anything else. I have in the past gotten up in the morning to write but I don’t think I’m at my creative best then. And at the end of the day, I’m too exhausted. I wonder how people do it. Work day jobs and write on the side. I’ve only ever worked a day job or written. Sometimes I’m lucky and the writing is the job. But never both.

Ah, well, if it’s important enough, I won’t just find the time. I’ll make it.
