The economy, the boss, the pitiful Christmas "bonus."
Agents, publishing houses, critques, rejections.
Dishes, laundry, runny noses, groceries, bills, dirty bathrooms.
Sometimes you just need a frog and a pig and a whatever to make you smile. Sometimes it's an incomprehensible Swedish chef that makes your day. Sometimes you just need Electric Mayhem. 'Cause sometimes you need someone to say "You can't take no for an answer."
We've been reevaluating our finances, our choices for our family, our careers. Being a full-time mom doesn't pay a lot of euros, doncha know! Adding 700 words yesterday to my WIP, the Magicless, is great, but it's still a ways away from being a successful writer. My husband's Health, Safety and Quality job in a small town factory is great, but there's not a lot of future there. So do I become a part-time worker, mom, writer? Maybe. Full-time worker, mom and no-time writer? I dunno. Do we look for a different H&S job. Possibly.
All I know, is I can't take no for an answer...and I think the kiddo is going to watch the Muppets while Mommy writes...
What are you going to keep fighting for?
