I Wasn’t Bored

Perspective is tricky. Many think these changes are good. Several have even said, “You must be happy that you’re very busy now. I’m sure you were so bored before.”


I wasn’t bored.


I was writing.

    Short and Sweet! Happy Monday!

  2. Are writers every really bored? Not me, especially if there are people around to watch.
    Hope things settle down for you!

    Seems to be in the air these days – I feel also that frenetic pace that allows so little time to focus on the good stuff like writing. Hope this busy time of change ends soon for you!

      I’m glad it’s not just me, but not glad that you are experiencing the same craziness! I was spoiled before and could use my down time at work to write. Now, with a new doctor and staff, the down time I have is now bustling and loud. I need to learn how to block it out better.

  4. Boredom is such a funny thing. I find that the more I work, the more often that I’m bored. Doing work for others exhausts me so that I don’t have the energy to do the things I enjoy (aka write) and then I’m bored. When I’m able to devote my time to writing, I’m never bored!

    I loved this, Jen. Short and bittersweet, indeed!

      Dayle, you are exactly right. My full-time job is a blessing and I am thankful for it, but it’s not my passion and sometimes I would just rather be writing. I’m not brave enough to quit and try to make it as a freelancer though … plus, it’s a REALLY good job that pays well and I love my boss. The new changes have made me question it too much, when deep down inside, I know I’m not going anywhere. I just miss the time I had AT work I devoted to writing. Alex suggested bringing in an ipod and zoning out, but I have to answer the phone and don’t want to be rude! LOL

      This just kind of flowed out and perfectly described how I was feeling. I don’t want to sound like a complainer, but hey, writers write what they think!
