The finish line is in sight

Podbang is eating my brain! I just finished editing the sixth of my twelve chapters.

Once the other six are edited, there's music to add, and then I have to join the chapters up into either two or three files (this sucker's too big for the archive, I'm pretty sure!).

Editing has made me realize how much I learned as I went along, and how much I still have to learn. The hardest thing at this point is letting small problems and errors go because I just don't have time to be a perfectionist.

Where did my four-day weekend go? *looks around* Aaarrggh! I need more days off!

Me too. I'm really disturbed by it, actually, and feeling really pressured (not by you!) because it's what I WANT to be doing but I've got these commitments.

I read a blog post not long ago about how real writers don't make those sorts of commitments. They always make time to write. Writing is their top priority. Me, it feels like my top priority, but when I look at my four-day weekend, I can see that it clearly isn't my priority, and I'm trying to figure out how to close that gap.

Sigh.

OMG--the very thought makes me want to write! I'm going to do that. As soon as I clean my house so the housecleaners can come.

And yes, I agree: checking my LJ and my inbox and my Google Waves (and text messages and my Twitter feed...) is part of writing for me. So is going out for coffee, riding my bike, and spending a little time with family. It's the damn work part that has no bearing on writing! Damn it. It just pays for real life.
