On A Roll

15 Dec

So I’m kind of mad at myself. I was on a really awesome roll last night, the kind of roll that lasts for six hours making you eat dinner hunched over the keyboard while praying you don’t spill the sauce to cause the Great Computer Crash. Then I remembered that I had a math final this morning. Dilemma, keep writing while I’m inspired or be responsible? I decided to be responsible. I stopped writing and filled my head with equations. I tried to go back to the story tonight but I’ve got nothing. Seriously, inspiration should have an on/off switch. No wonder I never get the laundry folded within a week of being washed. I’m too busy straining my fingers to type as quickly as my mind thinks to get all this unpolished and unforced brilliance out of my head before real life gets in the way again.

On the bright side, I got about 15 pages of awesomeness before I remembered to study. So that’s exciting. Oh, I just thought of something! Bye now.

    Har! That’s me totally. I’m always bent over the computer trying to find an excuse to keep on rather than delve into homework.

    Usually I had to stop for Astronomy. It’s interesting, but it ain’t literature. 🙂

    (Thanks for the follow!)

      Yeah, I’m one of those total writing dorks who wishes I could stick my head in the sand and pretend there’s nothing else. I envy the people who get to do this professionally. Someday, maybe.

      I usually have to stop for German. (Thanks for the read!)
