Time and Reality
The subject may not be what you think. ;) No indepth analysis of Einstein's theories here (I'd be grossly out of my league). This post is a comment on the very limited time available to most writers, since most of us must hold down a "day job" or a business, run a household and raise kids, or have a variety of other distractions that impact our available time to write, research, network with other writers (critique and comment), or post to blogs and various writer's websites.
When I look at my schedule, I wonder how I manage to get anything done. But even with eleven hour days (work hours and commute), running a horse farm, managing two households (hubby is in the military), and standard chores like grocery shopping, paying bills, maintaining somewhat of a tenuous contact with relatives to let them know I'm still living (ha!), I still find time—or make the time—to write novels. I often miss self-imposed deadlines and get frustrated with the long and tedious process of edits and revisions, but still, I make progress.
*chants softly to self* We shall overcome. We shall overcome.
The most difficult thing for me is when my muse comes to call, and my mind goes into 'writing mode' but there's no way possible to write. All those fabulous scenes and sections of dialogue are whizzing through my head, but...I have to go to work, or see to a horse, or catch a flight, or I'm already late for an appointment. Such is the writer's life. :/
