On Monday I’ll be back to work. For a bit. I’ve been unemployed since January and the job I was able to find is only temporary. Which means it could last weeks or months. I have no idea at present.
But what I do know is that working full-time will cut severely into my writing time and online time. I’ll probably only have time to post to my blog on Sundays.
My writing schedule when I’m working full-time is to wake up at 5:00 in the morning and write for a couple of hours. Then I go to work. If I have time to write during lunch I do that. I try to write when I get home but sometimes my poor brain is just fried. But I usually try to get in at least a hour. And there’s the weekend writing of course.
My overall goal, like pretty much everyone who writes, I’m sure, would be to write full-time and make enough from my writing to do that.
But, realistically, I’m shooting more for being able to work part-time and then have the the rest of the time to write. That would be ideal for my particular situation.
So, anyway, I won’t be online as much while I’m working as I put the writing first. Again, have no idea how long this particular assignment will last but I know I was lucky to get it with the current job situation.
Oh, just wanted to mention that yesterday I went to the local RWA meeting and Kathryn Albright, who writes wonderful historical romances, gave a great presentation on the Writer’s Path.
She recommends the book Seven Steps on the Writer’s Path. If you go to the link you can see what those seven steps are and find out more about the book.
I told Kathryn that since I will have to readjust my writing schedule around working full-time again, those seven steps will be of a great help to me.
So, today, Sunday, I’m getting my head wrapped back around the old 8-5 working mode, readjusting my writing schedule as a result and relaxing before hitting the 40 hour a week grind tomorrow.
See you next Sunday!
