What happened to all of the excess time I used to have?  My God, work has been killing me lately.  That, topped with my need to stay up relatively late to try to write and then my allergies not letting me breathe properly during sleep (and therefore interrupting my sleep) has worn be down this week.

I have a sore throat.  I’m achy and tired and grumpy.  And apparently prone to complain from the sounds of this post.  I intended to sit down behind the computer to work on a short story but I doubt it’s going to happen.  Too tired…and besides that, what is it about the damned NCAA tournament that sucks you in even when you don’t particularly like basketball?

Anyway, I have another article up over at Freelance Writerville.  It’s about the split personalities within that are always at war.  I think writers of all sorts will enjoy it.  You can check it out here.

I think maybe it’s time to down some NyQuil and zone out…



  1. I read your post yesterday and found it to be quite true. That parallel between making money and doing what you want is disturbing to me.

  2. Great article, Barry. Well, I guess I don’t need to think about how swell freelance writing would be anymore… I worked putting together technical documents for a computer company for a while so I could guess the feeling. Hard to be passionate about that stuff, not enough blood and violence I suppose. 😉

  3. Perhaps this article has disabused me of my freelance ideas. It seems like it could be such a good thing, but when you’ve written all you can write, the stories that you want to create would be the first to go.

    I hope you Nyquilled yourself into sweet dreamland. 🙂
