Day 238 – Writing for my day job, at night

Day 238 of my 365 Day Writing Project.

Well, if this isn’t a sign that I am disenchanted with revising the first draft of my book, I don’t know what is.

I wrote tonight. But I didn’t write for my own emotional enjoyment like I usually do. I wrote for my day job. Don’t get too excited or anything, but I wrote…are you ready for it? A settlement agreement. Yippee, woo hoo, I can hardly contain my creativity from exploding onto the screen. This is the type of writing I do at my day job on a regular basis, so when it comes to doing it during my free time, I usually can’t procrastinate quick enough. (Or slow enough?)

But in truth, I was glad to do it. I didn’t want to work on revising my book tonight. I settled a case today and if we are going to avoid trial later this week, I need to have the document ready to be signed tomorrow. I worked on it tonight when I would normally be writing for fun, or lately, revising (not so fun). I chose to write for my day job instead of for me. A settlement agreement, for Pete’s sake. I think it is fair to declare myself in a funk. The good news is, at least I’m still writing…something.
