I Got Got Got No Time



That about sums it up for me. No time for my blog. No time to read yours. And, alas, no time to even write this week.

Tomorrow, a holiday, is more of the same. No time left for you, my dear manuscript. But soon, real soon.

Why? Because I'm working three day jobs, darn it! Yes, they're all part time, but still. Plus, there's this little matter of sleep. I must have eight hours or I'm a walking zombie and no fun to be around, even for myself.

Hmm, Tuesday is the day. I commit to carving out at least four uninterrupted hours to write. That should net me at least 1000 words, maybe more. I finished Part I last Sunday. And have the beginning of Part II in mind. Now to just sit down and flesh it out, let it unfold.

To my blogger buddies, I see your titles and blurbs fly by on my dashboard, and, oh how I want to read your posts. One day, one day soon, I know I'll be able to sit and catch up. But in the meantime, I have something to look forward to.

Till next time...

Someday you'll have to tell us how those jobs are going. But I can sympathize. I've no time to blog, no time to comment. I feel awfully guilty about that last part, too. There's a lot of faithful people out there (like your good self) who I've been neglecting. Hope to rectify that in the near future. Hope times get less hectic for you!

Thanks, Postman. I have the same dilemma. And, yes, in the near future I'll be catching up and commenting again, too. In the meantime, congrats on that pilot exam!!!

Three jobs!! Any benefits? Like, uh, bennies, or maybe a gun? Good on you for putting sleep and writing first and second. Kind of sorry you stuck that song in my brain, though.

Haha! The benefits are IN-COME! That's a big one. No guns, no bennies. I did get to buy a laptop today, that's a big benefit. Booked a timeshare in New Smyrna Beach, FL, in August, another big ben. And...I'm almost back in to blog mode. Yes!
