Our holiday was wonderful, but I'm about fireworked and paraded out for a while. It feels right to settle into what passes for routine around here.
FWIW, my routine is probably anyone else's jumbled day. That's another post. One day.
I know today's the official day off for a Sunday July 4, but since I don't get official days off, here I am.
Because I'm working today, it has the reverse affect on me of playing hooky. This is how my mind perceives it, whether or not it's true, since I would be writing today no matter what.
Today I'm getting a little ahead. Giving myself a little wiggle room. Gaining an edge.
I like that. A lot.
How about you?
Do you like to stay ahead of the curve?
Or do you prefer the crunch of a deadline that you fear you may not make? Is that what it takes for you to buckle yourself to the chair and crank those fingers into motion?
How about your protagonist and antagonist?
Would it make a difference to your characters or your plot or your conflict if this facet of personality came into play?
