Busy Doing Nothing
No, when I don’t write, it’s because I’m too busy doing other things: preparing for or taking part in Chudfest (our town’s ten-day festival); editing newsletters; meeting other writers for networking; cleaning the house – and so the list goes on. When I was at work, when I had a ‘proper job’, I would go to the office or factory, do my eight hours – and then the rest of the day was my own.
I need to think about writing as work. Then it would be my new ‘proper job’ and would take priority, be productive. After all, I have the best job in the world – why wouldn’t I want to turn up every day and just do it?
