Seems every other day the price of gas has jumped by another 10-12 cents. Ugh! I try not to look at the price when I fill up. Otherwise it’d be too depressing. Might as well bite the bullet and just go for it. What options do we have? Unless you own a horse and it can get you to where you need to go. Personally, when it warms up a bit more, I’ll ride my bike instead of taking the car. Well, maybe not to the grocery store, but you get my drift.
One of these days, things will settle down in the Middle East and the cost of fuel will stabilize. Hopefully. In the meantime we’ll have to make some sacrifices to get by. Because you know the cost of food will increase along with the cost of gas.
So what do these ramblings have to do with writing you ask? Simple. Just like we have to make sacrifices in our everyday lives, we also have to make sacrifices in order to find time to write. Whether you work full time at the day job, write full time or are somewhere in-between, it doesn’t matter. We have to decide what’s more important to us.
Long leisurely trips in a gas guzzling car . . . or eating.
Writing . . . or going crazy when we can’t get the characters out of our head.
Is there really any choice?
