Draining Me

The day job is draining me. I tell myself that i'm going to write, that it can't keep me back, but I still succumb to it's dangerous pull--the need to make money and survive. 

The worst is sitting there when an idea pops into my head and I can't do anything about it. Sure I can jot down the idea, but it's not the same. Sometimes you just want to pursue an idea to it's fullest. 

The funny thing is there will be situations when i'll have the time to write and end up squandering it all away to news or YouTube videos or some other thing. 

Yet the ideas still come. 

I do get worried that one day they wont come, but that's just irrational fear. They will come. As I've written before, there are ways to coax them out of your mind. Music and reading are a couple of those things. 

The most important thing is to keep going. Perseverance. You may get that rejection letter one day, but tomorrow is another day, and there's another after that. Sleep on it, and in the morning you'll be surprised how much more enthusiasm you'll have. If you don't, then maybe writing (or whatever your endeavor) is not the right fit for you. 

Okay, going to go try to do some writing, or reading, or maybe i'll just go to sleep--it was a rough day at the day job today. Whew.
