Thank you, Mavis

Mavis sent me this New Yorker cartoon!

Coincidentally, today, aka day two of my two days off, I’m going to pick up bird seed (and other things), write, go to the library, work at the Grace Church archives, exercise, make my lunch for tomorrow, iron the curtains I washed yesterday and put them back up, and no where in all those things is any kind of real day off activities! There’s no time! This is insane.

    Hey, I DO understand the stress of working full-time and trying to write. When I was a reporter, working all day (and half the night sometimes) to get stories for the newspaper, the LAST thing I wanted to do when I got home was write anything. Burn out is high among reporters, and it’s near impossible to write fiction when you are exhausted from a long day of writing already.

    But take heart, the census job is temporary and you’ll soon be back to full-time writing on your book! Hang in there!

    Thank you, Cara. I’m freaking out a little. I keep telling myself it will be back to normal in a few months. I am grateful for the work, though.
