Writing Time and Motivation
I think, after being a stay at home mom for a lot of years before taking a full time job, I viewed the house as my job. When the kids were in school I'd clean, cook, wash, scrub and make sure everything was running like a well oiled clock. Then the kids grew up and I got a job and life went on. Now back at home full time I find myself falling back into the stay at home mom job. Instead of looking at writing opportunities I'm cleaning! WTF!
I must be insane.
I've begged the universe to give me writing time and here it's handed to me and I blew it. Sheesh!
And today I got an interview. An opportunity to return to the real world. Why am I so bummed at the prospect of going back to 9 to 5? Did I miss something I should have done? Am I subconsciously sabotaging myself?
But hey, an interview is no guarantee of a job. Perhaps this is my kick in the pants?
