When a 'day job' consumes an author, you wonder where they get the inspiration to sit down at night (or 5am in my case) and write. It's simple. They are mentally ill. In a good way. :) Authors have a sickness--a little worm in their head that only rests with the written word. Just last night I found myself running over to the laptop, typing the next paragraph in my book, and then running back in the kitchen to turn off the boiling water. I ran back to the laptop, typed a sentence, and then drained spaghetti. But each sentence was one step closer to closure.
Many mornings I wake up and wonder where the pool boys are? Because aside from the written word, pool boys are the next inspiration!
Whether you are an author, a veterinarian, a cable installation technician, or a software technician...how do you juggle the demands?
