I find Sundays the hardest day for me... Not because of church! LOL! But because it hits me full force just how addicted I am to writing. Since it's the one day I've vowed not to "WORK" LOL! I've even thought about convincing myself that writing isn't really work, because it just seems so fun most of the time... but yeah, that never goes over well. I quickly realize that, okay, had I just been writing for "fun" the past 11 months, then maybe--MAYBE--I could get away with working on Sunday. But since I fully expect to get paid for these books and have them sold, I figure I better go ahead and keep the Lord on my side for this particular hobby! LOL! Hence my vow to never EVER work on ANY of my books that will be sold.
Grr... sigh, this is a hard day.
So, I try not to think of it as a wasted day more as a day the Lord intended, a day of rest. LOL! Hey, at least I get to lay in bed and read and catch up on other books, right? Besides, i have noticed that if I DON'T write on Sundays... the ideas and speed of my latest Manuscript just zoom full force at me the remainder of the week.
Hmm... Wait! Maybe I've tapped into something here? I wonder if that's my secret? People are always asking me how I can write so much. Even Nano I completed in three weeks this year (Without writing on the Sabbath Day) So what do you think? Is that my secret then? Because when I'm good and give the Lord His day, he gives me 6 more of almost uninterrupted writing bliss? Hahahah! OK, so not ALWAYS bliss, but you know what I mean! LOL!
So has anyone else notice this phenomenon in their own writing?
