Today was another easy writing session. Mind you, I left it for the absolute worst time of the day, when I’m least likely to write–in the evening, around bedtime. Not an ideal time to aim for, of course, but alright for training. Important for training actually . . .
Because that busy season I mentioned, coming up at work . . . it starts in two days.
And once it starts, writing around 8-10PM while totally exhausted, is going to become the norm.
So, even though part of me thinks, “Take the luxury of not having to deal with that immediately!” the other party of me is like, “Figure it out now.”
Of course, the solution continues to be, “Just think of it as work and force yourself to start,” but the real test is going to be coming home at 11PM after working an 8:30AM-10PM shift, which is totally a thing at my job.
Part of me is all, “OMFG, go out tomorrow and walk around Manhattan for 13.5 hours, then try to write at 11! Figure it out!” But the other half of me is all, “Ughaslkhjaiwawuiaoeuhwua . . . I just want to sleep.”
I’m going to go buy a jacket tomorrow. Going to at least do that and then train myself to write first thing when I walk in (instead of relaxing).
If that doesn’t work . . . it’s going to just be hiding during lunch breaks at work, trying to knock out a few hundred words in my tiny notepad.

The challenge bar gets lifted higher. You’ve set yourself a difficult challenge, dude – I had no idea. It’ll be informative to read about this next phase of the month – and you’ve got your daily blog post to write as well!
I know. Ugh. These posts will… probably get shorter. Unless I genuinely have something to talk about, but I don’t know how much room there’ll be for thinking about writing when dealing with hordes of people knee deep in the holiday season spirit. In November. Somehow, that just doesn’t sound like a patient, happy crowd, which is ironic.
Anyway, thanks, man. Fingers and toes crossed.
