There's not a word for how exhausted I am.

So, on top of writing, I work two jobs. One is grading customer service calls for a phone company so that the big wigs can track what their agents are doing. The other is pushing Signature collection and Delicious smelling candles at Bath and Body Works.

I worked twelve hours today. Eight hours listening to calls and four selling soap. I was planning to come home and write after job one. Get some edits done. Just relax.

Didn't so much happen.

Writing takes a lot of commitment, there is no denying that. I honestly wish that I could afford to only have one job, and be able to focus more time on my book. Especially now that I seem to be getting more hours at BBW. Sure, I could be writing now, but my mind is so fried that I'm lucky to be blogging without misspellings.

I don't think I'll have much chance to write this weekend, either. I work tomorrow, have a call in on Sunday and church revival tomorrow night and most of the day on Sunday. I want a day where I don't have to do ANYTHING. AT ALL. FOR SEVERAL DAYS. Maybe then I'd have the energy to write.

  1. People don't realize how demanding writing is. As much as it would be wonderful to have writing your only job-look at it this way, all the quirky, loathsome people you interact with make great characters! Being exhausted and weary give an authenticity to the writer behind the words. I think the best of "all" things emerge from crisis situations, whether that be insanity, poverty, loneliness, despair, anger, etc. Keep busy, carry a recorder for when the muse comes and you will create extraordinary work!
