...you could just go away?
Not permanently, or anything serious! Ha! But just sort of vanish for 24 hours and do nothing but write?
Of course it would take planning, like finding someone to watch the Little Miss or planning this vanishing act around my husband's fireman schedule, not to mention trying to figure out WHERE I'd go to write uninterrupted for that long...not to mention if you go to a hotel or somewhere away-away, there's money to be involved, and then the issue of food, and...
That's why I'm still sitting here at my kitchent able, NOT vanishing. ;)
But it sounds great, doesn't it? I love my family and I love the responsibilities God gave me, and I USUALLY have my priorities straight ;) But can you imagine writing for a solid day with no phone calls? No social media? No cartoons blaring or toddlers announcing their potty needs or no guilt over going to the gym or no emails or no text messages? JUST writing?
Such a dream!
Hahahahahahaha literally just now as I typed the above lines, my toddler ran by me, holding her booty and shouting "I gotta go poopoo!" hahahahahaha. I'm not kidding.
Lately, I feel the pressure of all my deadlines, those both self imposed and publisher-imposed, and honestly- it's not crushing, it's INSPIRING.
I WANT to go write. I NEED to write. I NEED the release of this story that it's been in my head for months that's almost done in proposal form. I NEED to finish it. I NEED to make progress on my contracted Love Inspired coming out next Spring (The Rancher Next Door) that's due to my editor in full this summer. I NEED to be brainstorming new stories for them. I NEED to be finishing the full manuscript criqitue for a client from my own editing service. I NEED and WANT to doing all of that and am excited about each project...Sigh.
I'm rambling. I blame it on the Easter candy.
Does anyone know what I mean? Do you ever get those inspired moments where you just feel like if you don't get a bunch of quality writing time in you will literally explode? It's not a bad thing but a good thing. I just don't know where to get it. lol
Maybe I can just set my clocks back...
