I write things. The main focus is a NaNoWriMo endeavor and seeing it through to completion. When I’m not devoting time to that, I write other things, and when I’m not doing that, I like to build things. Given I have two days a week off, I don’t get the chance to do all of those things during those two days. But I’m OK with that. When it’s time to go to work, I still feel like I accomplished something…most days. I miss the mark sometimes.
Right now, the other writ things will likely be response to quick flash fiction challenges, posted here. Sandbox adventures will hopefully make a showing. If I’m not playing in a sandbox of my own design, I visit other sandboxes for a wee while. Hopefully without getting tossed out of them.
I’ve found that I can get lost on the Tweety and Tumblr because I’ve found so many great voices there. It’s hard to not keep scrolling and reading. As I said, two days for my own machinations aren’t ever enough. Doubt anyone feels like something they’ve manage to have for themselves in this world is ever ‘enough.’
It’s taken well over a decade to know that writing for me is so much more than I relegated it to. So now I learn about the balancing act that is a full time gig and stop writing in my head. Sounds like an adventure that I’m probably in no way prepared for. There’s always catharsis by way of the workshop.
