Free Time

What do you do when you're not writing?

Some of you may, or may not know this about me, but I'm a veterinary technician. I spend over 164 hours a month, every month, tending to the needs of other people's animals. Don't get me wrong, I love my job, and have been told I'm very good at it, but this job takes its toll. Every day I see people, and sometimes their pets at their worst.

Because of my job, I find writing a necessity. I've been in this field for ten years, and every passing year I feel the drain even more. I would probably look for a different line of work if I weren't so attached to my boss. We do a lot of work with local, and out of state rescues. It can be hard sometimes.

When I'm not writing or working, I try to spend time with my family or distract myself with books, and the newest movies. It's not my interest in all things Sci-Fi that drives me, but the need to escape, the older I get the more I realize this. I'm very much a solitary person, I have no children or a spouse, So, I spend a good amount of time with my younger sister and my nephew and nieces.

If I can't write, or spend time with the family, I target shoot or paint.

What do you all do in your spare/free time?
