A Writer's Life

I typically check two author blogs regularly: Laurell K. Hamilton's and Katie MacAlister's. Oddly, they both blogged about similar things today—what it means to be a full-time author.

I've gotta say, I've got it pretty easy right now. I'm working on only one book, I'm not promoting anything yet, I'm not on Facebook or MySpace, I haven't touched my website in a shamefully long time, I'm not editing another book, or working on the outline of a third. I'm not even on a deadline.

Seeing those posts was a good reminder to enjoy right now, my free time, my shorter workdays. There will come a time when I'm up to my eyeballs in writing work, when I'll need an assistant or two just to help me keep it straight. I really look forward to that time, but right now, I'll enjoy getting to go eat a piece of chocolate and chill in front of the TV.
