Those were the questions I was asking myself last week, whilst staring at the blank screen after having taken two of the ‘precious’ annual leave days from my full-time job to get stuck into the writing. Fortunately for me, a little voice suggested I work on another writing project which was keenly motivating me at the time. So I did. And not only did I complete that second writing project, but I also managed to move the heroine in my novel from the two brick walls she seemed to be stuck between. Hallelujah! I shouted. Then, once more motivated, I had to return to work (the bread an’ butter type, you know).
It ain’t easy working full-time whilst trying to become a ‘writer’. (Oops, here comes that question again. What is a writer?) I wonder if one day I’ll actually be able to answer that.
