Week 2 Woes

There are good developments and bad developments recently.  The good news is that I’ve found a job!  I’m working in the office in an insurance agency.  It’s not the field I had in mind, but I’m not complaining.  I’m catching on to the work quickly enough, my bosses like me, and the pay is good.  Though while I like where I am now and those above me wish I will stay, I’m still going to run back to the restaurant kitchen when I can.

I’ve run into the problem I feared and knew would come up when I moved up here:  the restaurant jobs are nonexistent.  This is the wrong time of year in a small town.  I didn’t expect to find anything good in my field until October.

The bad news: Script Frenzy is in week 2, and even I’m feeling its effects.  Week 2 is the time when many writers feel burnt out or otherwise unmotivated, and their progress slips.  I managed to get a few days ahead with my page count in the previous weeks.  Not so much now.

I’ve also been slipping in my book-per-week challenge.  It’s Saturday, and I’m only a few chapters in to Children of Dune.

These are feelings similar to when I was still in Fort Lauderdale, working and in school.  There are many things in my life that I love to do, but there never seemed to be enough hours in the day.  At least now I have weekends off, something I won’t be enjoying once I get back in the kitchen.
