A day in the life of an aspiring professional writer:
Home from work at 5:15. Finish critiquing submission for group tonight.
Pass out from 5:30-6:30. (That was just supposed to be a 15 minute nap …)
Dash to writer’s group. Be late.
Writer’s group from 7-10:30.
Get home. Freak out about things that need to be done for the car. Do dishes and attempt to cuddle kitties (read: keep them from eating my head.)
It’s 1:21 AM and I have to drop the car off at the mechanic by 8 in the morning, I have to be at work at 8 in the morning, but hey, I’ve just sent off some queries. Now, before I completely crash, I’ve got to take a look at that blog concept I meant to jump start at the beginning of January. I have not yet worked on the novel today. I did get some character development done.
There aren’t enough hours in the day or enough writing grants to go around.
And this has been your whiny post for the week. I promise that my next one will be better. After all, I’ve got a poem coming out in print this month! 😀
