When work is slow and the personal life allows, I love having the time to dedicate to writing. It is a joy to bring characters to life and set them in motion down an unknown road, whether it be flash fiction or novel length manuscript. However, when time does not allow, I hate writing, abhor it, disdain the act of sitting at the altar of Qwerty. The frustration of not being able to dedicate the time to those ideas we bring life to is worse than navigating Houston rush hour in a motor home with no rearview mirrors. Writing is truly a full time job (part time at least). If you don't have the time for it, it seems to be a waste of time. Hopefully, the balance will return, or Dr Life will excise this tumor of the craft.
