Buying Time

Does anyone know where I can get more? Anyone? Someone?

I had been burning the candle at both ends since the start of the year. This week isn't any different. I've not gotten the time to even read any of the new fics out there, not to mention the list of VM fics Katherine sent me months ago. When Nilly returns to the workforce in two weeks, I'll have lesser time to myself.

Usually this doesn't bother me but really, I can't even find time to write! I had to send chapter 6 to Amy to read over. I am stuck in a rut and I need someone to get me going. I've stared at Tell Her This and Dueling and right now, I can't even give it the time of the day to update. Guys, it will be done. I promise. I hate writers who don't finish their stories and I can guarantee you all, I am going to strive not to be lumped in that category. The 3 letters E N D will appear on the last page. It might take longer than usual but it will happen.

*Sigh*

I was watching The David Letterman Show while typing out MNT when Raul Midon came on. Wow. If you are into R&B, you should go out and listen to this guy. I was blown away with his talent. I literally stopped typing to watch him perform. Shortly after that, I had to go to iTunes to check out most of his work. Trust me, you won't be disappointed with this guitarist.

While you're there, check out the iTunes exclusive -- Jason Mraz. I can't wait for his album to come out. His last album was good... Not great, but good enough to run and sing along with. Some of his lyrics are a little uninspired but he has a style that's fun. His EP? Great. Check out Burning Bridges. It's music inspirational enough to get the creative juices going.

Now if I could just reslove problem number one so I can apply these new musical listings in my library.

Time.

aw, I'd give you more time if I could. If you can get to Seattle, you can use my desk and my laptop--no one would bother you here. We don't even have a home phone to ring and interrupt!

There's nothing wrong with letting fics rest for a bit. I find giving it time and then going back to the beginning and rereading helpful (again, finding time helps, huh?) We all have faith in your ability to complete the fics.

how will you have less time once Nilly starts work? Maybe you'll find more writing time at work? I'll definitely miss jobs where I could write at work. When I was massaging, I wrote the entire time I didn't have clients. But I'm def. not missing that job. :)

Yeah, I hear you.

I'm a bad writer. I have two fics that are probably not going to get finished. (I finally admit that I'll most likely never finish The New Heir. I feel sad.) But honestly, I don't watch 7th Heaven anymore, and I really don't want to spend all my time writing for a bunch of 13 year olds who want everything to be squeaky clean and have no real substance to it, as long as everything turns out rosy.

But, I swear, even if I have to write for the rest of my life, I will finish my Mary series and Things Change!

I'd offer you my home for writing and time by yourself, but it's always crazy here. There's usually at least 6 or seven people miling around the place, and I barely have enough time and privacy to write, so I doubt that you could find it here.

Ack! Lightening! Thunder! Stupid storms, are you getting hit too?
