Overtime is a Muse Killer


Keeping it short this week, folks.

I'm working overtime.  Why, you may ask, am I torturing myself like this?  I like money.  I have bills.  And until they recently opened up the overtime, I have had a distinct lack of the former to pay the latter.

So I'm at the day job from 8 am to 10 pm during the week (Mon-Thur) and 7:30 am to 8:00 pm on Sat.  I do have a short break between the overtime and the start of my regular shift on the weekdays, so I've made it a goal to write 100 words a day during that time.  That gives me something to do creatively to keep the spark going.

I have hopes that this will keep me writing even as I grab up every extra hour I feel I can safely work.  I will be doing this until Himself starts getting paid/gets a paying gig/finds a part time job.  For all intents and purposes, my overtime is my second job.

My writing is my (as yet unpaid) third job.

Wish me luck!

And good luck to everyone with their own writing pursuits over the next week.  May we all reach our goals and have a great deal of success over the coming days.
