I know what you're all going to think here at the end of this post.

Some days though, there's just not enough time to make time to write or revise or read.

Yesterday was one of those days.

Today is looking to be one as well.

There just aren't enough hours in the day to get everything done that needs to be done.  And I don't want to hear the arguments that you have to make time.  There's no time to make time.

"Timeline?  This is no time to talk about time!  We don't have the time!"  (To quote a favorite movie.  Bonus points if you know the reference.  And we all know how much you want more cool points in my secret book that I keep on everyone in the universe.)

So, yeah, now back to the rest of my insanely busy day.


  1. Since I have two careers, I'm always juggling them and deciding which one to work on. Some days flute takes priority, and some days writing does. It's just one of those things :) Don't worry, you'll have some good writing days coming up.

  2. Star Trek: First Contact. Deanna Troi. hehe.

  3. Oh, my! You sound like me! lol I'm always running around like a crazy person. I don't know what I'd do with myself if I wasn't going full throttle. I have two years until both my kids are in school full day. That seems like for-ever! :)

    My issue is not getting enough time to write. I've been very strict lately about making sure I get an hour in of solid writing. lol One day I'll get that during the day light hours. Right now, O'Dark Thirty is what I'm left with and at the end of a long a** day, I'm falling asleep a lot of the time. *sigh* Life! It will make ya koo-koo! :)

    Here's hoping your clock is nice to you! As for the guess?? The only thing I can think of the White Rabbit in Alice In Wonderland. Sorry, Disney movies are about all I get to watch these days! lol

  4. Half a point for seconding Embee? :) Hope you find some free time!

  5. Hey Embee already guessed it! I CALL NOT FAIR!!!! *cries in her hands*

  6. I wrangle with this constantly, as I have a full-time day job, 2 little kids and the writing thing. When it comes down to it, all you can do is the best you can with what you've got. The hardest part of that, though, is accepting there isn't enough time to get to everything everyday. Don't beat yourself up over it, guilt's wasted energy. :)

  7. That quote is from Star Trek First Contact. :) I LOVE Star Trek!


  8. Good luck. Just take one day at a time. Whatever is important for that day, you'll get done. Don't sweat it if you can't do everything every day.

  9. Aubrie, I hope you're right.

    Embee, spot on.

    Sarah, O'Dark Thirty sounds about right for me. Life will definitely do that to you.

    Susan, I think it's something we all struggle with, isn't it? I hope so, otherwise I'm doing something wrong!

    Jen, I never said cool points went to only one person.

    Windy, I don't know how you do it all.

    Glam, yessirree bob it is. Star Trek. Sigh. Love it.

    Angie, I hope you're right.
