Day 84: My Circus, My Monkeys

This is my circus and my monkeys.  Am I always thrilled to be the ringmaster?  No, but this is just how it is.  Sometimes they get a little crazy and I have to wrangle them and that can be a job.  Other times, they behave and they’re fun to watch.  Usually, it’s somewhere in between.  Working a demanding multi-faceted full-time job makes it difficult to write because when you get home at 7:00 after a 10 hour day, you just want to veg out and you literally have to force yourself to even turn on the laptop, much less write.  And when you make it to the laptop, you just sit and stare at the blank document.  I don’t have any brilliant answers to this problem…I’m just putting it out there to let you know that you are not the only 1 with this issue.  We have to find a way to wrangle those monkeys and make them work for us.  And when I figure that out, I will let you know.  Or, if you figure it out…tell the world!

  1. You know I always assume on days I am not working I should accomplish enough that is equal to what I accomplish at work. That never happens. So to expect to accomplish all you want to after those long days seems like an enormous task. I admire your continued efforts to keep writing even after your work day. Good for you.
