I was talking to a student today about the tug of war that I'm sure aspiring writers go through when balancing day jobs with their writing passions.
I want to use every waking moment to work on my Mall Demons series. I have other projects I'd love to start. But... that gets put on hold. It must be put on hold or my family starves. Sorry for the melodrama, but it seemed appropriate.
Over the last week I have been squeezing time for every drop to work on my projects. There just hasn't been enough time in the day. Lots of student papers to grade means some writing time gets sacrificed. Sigh...
I had hoped to post the fourth episode in the Mall Demons series this past Sunday. Now, I'm hoping I can get it published during the next week.
I should catch up with grading within that time. Then...no more tug of war (at least that's what I'm hoping for). Here's to hoping.
