I hope that this won’t sound like an excuse: I’m so busy to post anything new on the Velociwritetor. At work, I am training five subteam leaders and one returning tutor while keeping an eye on one QA officer. Aside from those tasks, I also need to pay attention to my own tutoring, so each day is packed with a lot of tasks. However, my work doesn’t end there. When I get home, I still need to tend to my mother because she just got back from the hospital. Weekends are also like that, but of course, I focus fully on my mother, so I hardly have time to write anything substantial every week. I hardly have time to rest, which gives new meaning to the phrase “rest when I’m dead.”
It makes me sad because I have so many things that I want to share. In my notes, I have two horror stories lined up, one of which is for a very dear friend. I also have several drabbles in mind; a mere 100 words but I can’t find the time to write them down. Since this — by this, I mean writing — is what makes me happy, I’m starting to detest each and every thing that makes me drop my pen, phone, or PC.
Of course, I know that I should not feel that way, so this week, I’m trying out a strategy. It looks like I have a very small window for writing while on the way to work, so I’ll try to use that time to type my stories. I have Evernote and the WordPress apps on my phone for writing, and I hope that they can help me accomplish at least one post per week for September. I’m not sure if I can do this alone, so I’d like to get help from you, guys. Could you please comment on this post if I don’t have anything published by Friday? I’d really appreciate all the help I can get. Thanks in advance!
