Unless writing is your job, it isn’t a job

For those of us who write from home, who write on spec, the opportunities to write often get shuttled aside for more pressing tasks.

For example – the grass is long. The weather forecast is for rain for the next three days. Mowing the grass has become something of a priority.

However, if I had a deadline for a story – with potential payment for meeting that deadline, then writing would be the priority.

But writing with the hope that someday, over the rainbow, I’ll have accomplished something that I can at least be proud of, if not make a living from – well, that tends to take a back seat to other things.
