09:03 am - Waking up, getting to work, and posting something I wrote last night with today in mind.
I managed to get Tina from the airport last night around 6:30, and got her home around 7. I then did some various home improvement projects, trying to make the world livable for Tina again (she "won't live in a construction zone", so I do my best to get it all cleaned up before she gets back, and I consistently fail). That lasted until about nine, when I sat down to write. I was supposed to meet druidkirk and the gang at romandruid's but I never got a call that they were in until about 9:45, so I just got stuff done. It worked out well in the end.

I've been looking through old journal entries and getting them posted or converting them from paper to electronics. I've also been kicking the crap out of ADF stuff for the past week, getting loads done on the Dedicant training pages, the GSP pages, and the Grove Organizer's Handbook and Oak Leaves. I'm setting myself up for a good break, I hope. I think I won't be refilling slots in my schedule as I finish projects. It's about time for a good spring cleaning.

I've been spending a lot of time on my back porch, laptop plugged in and writing. It's heped me get a lot of writing done, including three new stories which will be unveiled in good time.

I was also contacted by a writer for Paramount for a writing sample. That bothers me on some level. I'm not sure what it is, but I don't want to write professionally. I have better things to do with my time. I think I just don't see writing as an "honest living", and think that, in general, people who do it expect society to care about them and give them cash for whatever they do.

Last night might have been a good night for a dip in the hot tub. It's been a while since I was in it last. I don't like using the hot tub when Tina's around because her window looks out into it, and I feel bad if I'm having fun with friends and she's in there trying to sleep.

So, does it matter if it's writing or art or software development? Probably not.

I agree. I'd much rather people paid me to make art then make hamburgers. For one thing, it's a much better potential income (there aren't a whole lot of folks working at a Mickey D's that are actually covering their rent). For another, it's much more satisfying.

Take my Mom. She makes a living but she hates her job. She's bored with it- there's nothing to challenge her. That's a big part of why she's been so supportive of me & my art. She doesn't want any of her kids to end up the same way.

People who spend 10-18 hours a day working aren't lazy.
