One thing that I fight with on a daily basis is a plethora of distractions that tend to keep me away from my writing more than I would like. I think that we all have that problem to one degree or another. Sometimes I can control it but after spending my day multi-tasking times ten here at work and working through lunch, I just want to turn my brain off and veg. The problem with that is I only have about three and a half hours from the time I usually get home until I go to bed to eat, take care of critters, spend time with my husband, get things ready for the next day and just breathe for a few minutes. I know that even thirty minutes of writing is something but it just seems to take so much effort. I also know that I have to make that effort if ever want to finish Rapture. So I have to reconcile those disparate things. This is a continuing theme in my writing efforts. When you have to work a day job and you can only write after work and on the weekend, it’s difficult to make yourself do it because it’s not unlike having a second job and who’s ever excited about that? So I have the mindset that I am working a second and be my own boss. I’ll let you know how that goes.
