If Only...

I am quite envious of lots of people on the internet. I look at what they're doing and see so much happening and think, "If only I had the time, I might be able to get in on that or do something similar." I've really reduced the amount of time available for me and writing. I've never been very disciplined when it came to writing and it probably shows, but now I've really stretched myself thin. I'm taking two classes this semester. One is work related sort of in a subject I know nothing about and the other is for personal enrichment. I'm also still working full-time. Writing is unfortunately at the bottom of a very long to-do list, and I will admit, watching stuff on Hulu often trumps writing. I need my Eureka fix. I have been working on Unicorn Bait, but MAN that's taking a lot of editing. I thought I was editing it before when I was posting it but that was a joke. I'm rewriting so many scenes and am giving myself headaches on how to resolve plot holes that I'm about to throw my hands up in defeat.

Oh and I'm seeing the same type problems editing UB in Open Office as in MS Word which is weird. They aren't exactly the same display problems but definitely similar. I'm going to try working from a .txt file now to see if the problems persist. I think the story may be cursed, probably by Errilol.

I want to write. I want to create characters and have them do stuff and have fun, but I just don't seem to either have the time or the energy. I wish I'd win the lotto already. Too often I'm having to steal time, like I am now, to work on writing stuff. I should be going to sleep now, but I'm going to go open a story file and try writing a few hundred words. I hope I don't oversleep again. I may not like my job, but I do want to keep it.
