Just a Few More Minutes!

It was 10:30 p.m. when I sat down at my computer last night. I'd stopped writing to get my daughter ready for bed, do the nightly chores, and make sure hubby got to bed on time. (He's notorious for staying up too late working in the garage.)

I just wanted to write a few more sentences. Well, the few sentences turned into a few pages. While this is a good thing, it wasn't great for my sleep. I want a job where I can go to work at 10 a.m. and leave at 2 p.m. and still get paid the same. Wouldn't that be great?

I'm finding that it is incredibly difficult to do everything I want to do. There's only so much time for exercising, writing, reading, cleaning, spending time with the kids, with hubby, doing the bills, etc., etc. I don't even watch t.v. anymore, unless it's the weekend and I want to relax with a movie.

Y'know, if I didn't have to work full-time, just think of all the hours in the day I'd have. But this is a catch-22 for me because I HAD that once. And I didn't get nearly enough done. I need the motivation to get up and go to work in the morning and that sets the tone for the rest of the day.

But I digress.

The important thing is that I wrote yesterday. Lots of words. Lots of good words.


  1. Glad you got some great writing in. I keep wishing I could get one of those jobs that I only work 3 days a week but get paid for 5...

  2. I think what is most frustrating is when you look back at the time you wasted. I do that all the time. I look back look at my misspent youth and the endless amounts of time I had to write and wonder what the heck I was thinking.

    Good work on the writing. That's terrific.

  3. Well done :)

    Even when you're home all day--if you have kids there you don't get that much done!! If I have spae I can write/edit anytime. No writers block so far touch wood. Time is just too precious!!!

  4. There is NEVER enough time in the day! But a day that includes writing progress is a GOOD DAY.

  5. As long as you're writing, that's good news! The alternative is NOT writing, and just think how you'd feel then.

    When a writer's writing, when the words are flowing hot, all is well with the world.

    Take care and keep blogging!

  6. Great work!! :)

    I envy your productivity. I think there are some days when the words are just cooking and other days when you just want to screech with frustration (today was one of those days for me, can you tell?)
