Rehearse for acting class (a scene from Chapter Two by Neil Simon), grade papers, create lesson plans, host write-ins, write novel, make art, play with kiddo, do the housework, prepare for teacher development readings, answer emails, check blogs, write blog, mail packages, get kiddo to do his homework, walk dog, pay bills, read more books, get car inspected, figure out this art show business, get enough sleep, and keep my temper.
The thing is much of this I don’t have to do. How much on your to-do list do you really have to do? How much of it do you just want to do? Now, speaking of things that are necessary for life and breath, I’ve got to go write that new novel–as if I don’t have enough words written already. Right?
