What if on a Friday night someone said to you, "You have this weekend to produce 5,000 words on your latest project." What would you do?
Everyone in my family would probably shoot themselves at the thought. I would think, "Really? I get the whole weekend to write? Rock!"
Life and the day job intrude too often to allow me the luxury of a full weekend of writing, but this weekend it happened and I hit a vein and cranked out 5,000 words on Muffin Man. Pretty good words, it feels like right now. We'll find out when I read it over tomorrow.
But if that question fills you with dread instead of ecstacy, you might want to rethink that whole writer thing.
