Reality has been trying to destroy
It’s been all about
getting back into the work force,
editing for clients,
editing for my publisher,
taking care of my son,
making sure my husband is fed & watered,
doing the groceries,
watering the plants,
writing my blog posts,
doing research for the next book in my series…
All of it is combining together
and making me miserable.
I don’t get to be truly creative.
I don’t get to write fresh ideas.
I don’t get to indulge in the guilty pleasure of my new story idea
because I have to bang out copy for the old series
(which I love, but I need a break from).
I took two hours the other day to work on the chapter breakdown
for the indulgence novel…
I wasn’t even writing anything new
but simply being immersed in that world,
touching the lives of those characters
made me realize
I’m spending too much time and effort on
and it’s slowly
So raise your mug of pencils with me
and let’s give a toast
to being literary drunks!
Which of your current WIP is keeping you satisfyingly drunk?
