I got a new full time job this past fall, and one of the reasons I took it was that is was 40% documentation. Like I have to spend that much of my time writing about what I did with the rest of my time. Which means non work writing is a bit thin. That\’s what i had heard about the problem with writing for a living and trying to write fiction on the side. The good thing is that I have lots of new characters to draw from. People you\’d never think really existed do exist and call me on the phone several times a week and ask me to do impossible things. Like believe whatever lies they\’re telling me at th moment. Good thing I have a built in BS meter. Although the way it\’s been red-lining lately, I may need to get it re-calibrated.
Writing, deadlines and randomness
