Putting the Week (and Writing) in Perspective

It’s Monday.  Ugh, right?  Personally, it takes me a good day to roll out of weekend-thinking-mode and wrap my head around the idea there is an entire work week sprawled out in front of me.  As a new author I have to pay the bills. That means putting in 37.5 hours weekly at something that produces income.  It’s not that I don’t like what I do – – I enjoy my work – – it’s just that I’d rather be building worlds, creating characters or plotting the downfall of my latest villain.  Mondays get a bad rap, but I’m sure it has fans. It’s all a matter of perspective.

The same holds true with writing – – how to approach a scene, craft setting, select the POV character.  Two people never look at the same set of circumstances the same way, but you know what’s cool about writing?  You get to be multiple people and embrace their individual perspectives – heroine, hero, villain, and everyone in between. It’s a playground of make-believe for grownups. Even on an uggy Monday I still like to conjure creative thoughts and pull the puppet strings.  A writer’s brain never shuts off!

With that said, what’s your favorite day of the week?

  1. Well, Mae, seems like you’re saying a good day of writing can be or put the sunshine, the joy and the adventure into any one of the days of our week. It’s fun hanging out with our stories! I totally agree.
    I like my job, too—but a just-for-the-heck-of-it day off is always a fav of mine, wherever it falls in the week.
    Nice to see you posting. Keep ‘em comin’!
