Announcement: Writing is not my hobby like needlecraft or stamp-collecting or walking the cat. Writing is more than this. It’s what I need to do, or the story people inside my head would multiply and multiply until they literally CRAWL OUT OF MY EARS! And that would be weird…it is not a hobby.
If I am writing, do not discuss politics (yes my hubby, I’m looking at you!) Also, when I am in my story world I am not aware that the children have stuffed small items up their noses or that my daughter has transformed her little brother into a red-lipped porn star. I need that half an hour. Again, I refer you to the paragraph above – writing is not my hobby.
So, writers, protect your time! You deserve it and you need it.
Write on! 😉
