Woohoo I have a job! But what about my writing? :-o

Okay, so last week I started a job as a poker dealer!

This is great news. I welcome the dosh with open arms, plus I get to wear a waistcoat and bow tie on a regular basis. But what about my writing?

I am the sort of person who needs to lock themselves away in a room for hours at a time in order to have a good writing session. Though now that I will have less free time, I might have to learn to write whenever I can, no matter what time of day it is. I suppose it’s all a question of getting into the zone.

I remember in high school when I used to come home, sit down at the kitchen table and write for hours on end. No problems at all. I simply sat down and began to write. As an adult, I have kind of lost that ability. But I think I need to reclaim it. Time is precious, and the ability to write at any time of day would be most desirable.

Lately, I am in the routine of writing in the evenings, often until the early hours. Unfortunately, this routine will come to an end due to my new job. As a poker dealer, I will be required to work at the casino in the evenings and the early hours (pretty much night shifts), so I will either need to find a new writing routine or develop the ability to write whenever the hell I feel like it.

By hook or by crook, I’ll find a way to manage my time. Time is precious, time is sparse. And often, I’m probably too hard on myself when I am not productive. So maybe I simply need to relax and go with the flow. Let’s see how things pan out eh ๐Ÿ˜›

In other news, I was nominated for the “Liebster Award” by the lovely Rachel (misswho.me) from Australia. Essentially, the award is a way for bloggers to commend each other, and everybody who receives the award has to nominate eleven more people. So now I have to find some time to seek out eleven worthy nominees! This might take some time, but I’ll try to post about it soon enough.

Ciao for now ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Congrats on the job, Nick. Isn’t it funny that I too used to write for hours on end in high school, but these days I struggle? Probably loss of confidence.

    • Thanks Rachel ๐Ÿ™‚ yeah, I think kids have more confidence and self-belief. As you grow up, you create all sorts of mental barriers for yourself!
