Butt on Fire

You read it right. Lately I’ve been feeling like I’m writing like my butt’s on fire.

Why? I’ve gone from one book to the next without stopping to “smell the roses” for months now. The good thing is that I’m getting a lot of writing done. The bad thing? I’m not sure there is a downside, unless you count the fact that I always seem to be on a self-imposed writing deadline. Even that is positive, I think. At least that’s what I keep telling myself!

So, the butt on fire writing does have a sort of end in sight. I’ve got plans for February and March. April is going to be the time for sitting back and reading—other people’s books, that is!—to my heart’s content. The hope is that by May I’ll want to plant my behind back in the chair and begin writing again. We’ll see…

What about you? Do you ever do something you love to such an extent that you feel like you’re on fire? Hmm?

Reading - sometimes even if my eyes bother me or I'm fighting a headache, I got to read.

LOL... Butt on fire, in chair. Hands ablaze, on keyboard.

You go girl.
