Classes at my school start at 8:20 and run until 3:08. Usually, I get to work about 7:30, and I stay until 4:00. This week, though, is the end of the first quarter, and a few things have put me behind on grading. I’m still getting to work at 7:30, but I’m staying until 5:00. I know others work longer hours, or work these hours more commonly, but it is what it is.
Then I go home and
try to write. I’ve begun the big climax, but I’m only getting a couple of hundred words a night right now, some of which have to change because they’re bad. But, it’s progress.
And progress is good. But I do find myself wishing I could just do the writing full time. Ah well. The world has other requirements.
