I have a lot of reasons NOT to write this week:
It’s parent-teacher conference week at school.
My computer is not working again.
My husband is just back from a week-long hunting trip.
I’m tired, gosh darnit!
So I’m particularly proud of myself for the 40 minutes of writing time I carved out for myself this afternoon. I read a lot of posts about writers and how they do or don’t find time to write. For a while I felt like my lack of a proper desk was what was really keeping my from writing.
This is my baby. It’s solid wood and I found it on craigslist. Even though I love it, (surprise surprise), the motivation to write still has to come from me. (What the desk doesn’t write the book for you? For shame!)
Whether I manage to find writing time or not, I try not to beat myself up to much about the choices I make with my time. Unless of course I get sucked into some sort of Bravo tv marathon.
