So, I’ve been writing a bit more lately, both on here and in my little notebook of observations, quips, and thoughts. I’ve been reading, too… A LOT.
I’ve come to learn that there are more than a few good writers out there, and by out there, I mean…well….out there. Wherever there is. I read stuff that makes me chuckle. I read stuff that makes me think. Stuff that makes me smile. I’ve come across sad stuff, fun stuff, happy stuff, and other stuff.
I like it.
Different styles. Different points of view. Different people. It is all entertaining, informative, and educational.
I see writers that break the rules. I see writers that keep to the rule book. I keep the rules I want and throw the others out, especially when doing my free writing. It makes it fun!
I’m working on something that is going to take some time to put together…time and a lot more thought than I have used in a long time. It may even require a little research.
I need more time in the day.
This whole “work” thing gets in the way.
I’ve got lots and lots to say.
But the lack of hours and minutes
keeps my fingers at bay.
And with that, I will end this little free writing session.
“I need more time in the day.

LOL. ***Right???*** I can so relate.
I agree! I just want unlimited time to write and read and travel and snuggle my pooch. And yes, people say “Get a job as a travel writer or blogger…” but actually making that happen seems incredibly daunting. Plus, the whole – I’m in school right now and can’t do it thing.
I agreed to do that post a day in April and I am so far behind. I am trying not to get discouraged, but rather to allow myself the liberty to catch up and do so. (This was my time for that – instead I caught up on your blog… oops.) But between work and then schoolwork and then actual time spent in class and then normal things like doing laundry and grocery shopping and making sure my apartment has a path clean enough to walk through, it is hard to get time to do it all. I wish I could just have two intentional hours a day set aside to just writing and reading.
Most days I find at least half an hour to read and that much time to write, even if it is right before I go to bed. I’ve thought about waking up an hour earlier, but since I already wake up at 6, we both know that is a no go.
