My working day consists of getting up, sitting down and writing articles. Mostly, I get paid to write entertainment news which I absolutely love! I also do travel, TV and the occasional dating article (though I worked tirelessly on dating articles last year and have run out of experiences to share lol!)
After my day is over, I get to work on my novel. If I class it as a hobby, it might not get done. The truth is, it's work of a different kind. It's work I adore, because I set the rules and I know the characters I am writing about. Lately, I am finding myself drawn more and more to fiction, and not wanting to focus on the day job. That would be fine, but I have to support myself, and bills need to be paid.It's hard to stay on task when all I want to do is drift off into my little chick-lit world and expand on the lives of my characters. Today, I am finding it particularly tough!
I'm happy with what I have. Writing is what I love and I know I'm lucky to be able to do it every day. I just wish there were a couple more hours in the day to fit everything in that needs to be done.
How do you stay on task when you need to do something other than writing?
