Ideas for a New Book Keep Flooding in
And I need to be finishing the one I'm working on.
I'm guessing this is what happens with many writers--none of us have enough time in the day to do what we need to do, much less what we'd like to do.
The older I get the less time there seems to be in a day. When I was a kid, there was so much more times and it seemed like the days moved far more slowly.
I've always been an early riser, even when I worked late night shifts at the telephone company. The big change is now I go to bed far earlier than I ever did, sometimes as early as when I was in grammar school. Not all that long ago, I always needed an evening. No matter how late I worked, I had to have at least an hour of an "evening", when I did what I wanted.
When I had little kids, my "evening" was after the little ones went to bed.
Now my evening starts right after dinner. That's when I settle down with hubby and watch some TV. I may read at the same time, but it's still my "evening."
My working time is in the morning. That's when I tend to things that need a fresh working brain, and that's when I write.
So what I really need is a longer morning.
As for the new ideas that are flooding in--they pop into my head during the night. When I'm trying to not think of anything I need to do so I can sleep, then all of a sudden a great for a new book pops in.
I'm going to finish this, and get to work.
See you all next time--enjoy preparing for whatever holiday you're going to be celebrating. For me, it's Christmas.
