Writing On The Sly

It's official: I do my best writing when I'm technically supposed to be doing something else. When I've got all the time in the world, no prior commitments, nothing else scheduled, and plenty of time to grab my laptop and write… that's not generally when I produce my best efforts.

But when I'm scrambling to get something else done, need to be somewhere else, have such a full calendar that I'm shoving things aside to squeeze room for others- that's when I'm most inspired to write! Maybe it's the rebellious aspect of it. "Hey, I'm writing this, when I probably should be doing something else! Neat!"

Inevitably, when I'm being rushed out the door, that's the time when an idea that's otherwise eluded me will be most likely to strike.

Today I snuck out early and started writing a new book based on an idea I've been kicking around for a few years now. I can't say too much about it yet, but it's a shorter work. I've finished writing Ribeye and the Sands of Fate, so I'm still working off the remaining steam built up from writing that. Naturally I don't actually have all the time I should have, and I'm probably putting a few other things off. But it sure feels great as I love this new project.
