It’s another long commute. I am not complaining; I knew what I was getting into when we moved. Actually, I don’t mind it. It’s productive time.
As a part-time writer, I either read, or I write. This morning, I did (am doing?) a little of both. I read and now I am writing for this blog.
I should be working on the novel, but by the time I get home I am wiped. With the commute it’s a long day. So I do what I can do. I read when I can and write whatever and whenever I feel like. It works somewhat; although, it’s not perfect.
Work gave me permission to start and leave a half an hour earlier. I was getting to work really early, so I thought I would ask “boss lady.” She was all game and she had no problem with me starting and leaving early which will help give me alternative routes home if the issue should arise. It already has (arisen, I mean), two days in a row the bus never showed (or was really late). Starting early will help me plan for alternatives.
I will soon be off for the Christmas break. I work until Christmas Eve and I don’t go back until the 6th of January. It will be nice to be off. I plan to write and drink plenty of coffee or tea. I am not much of a tea drinker, but I think I will get back to it.
Well that’s all I have for now until my next update.
