Job Loss Propels Writer to Stardom . . . Not! (Part II)

Yesterday I shared my theory about "not enough time" being a (poor) excuse for not writing. The other part of this enduring belief  is the idea that we will have "more time to write when . . . (fill in the blank)." Occasionally, this is true: "I'll have more time to write when the wedding is over." "I'll have more time to write when I'm not taking care of my sick child." But, I've found from personal experience that most of the "whens" don't turn out to be true. When one time-consuming things ends, another ends up taking its place--or even being piled on. We feel like we have less and less time because it's true! As much as we try to say "no" to volunteer opportunities, social engagements, new work assignments, and other time hogs, we still end up with too much on our plate.

So, how do we keep writing despite all these demands on our time? First, you need to keep writing a priority--don't get so distracted that you stop writing altogether. Second, you need to figure out times that you can write--even if they are just small blocks of time. And third, you need to keep motivated. How to keep motivated will be the topic of a future blog.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic [url=http://viagra.wilantion.ru]Viagra 100mg pills[/url] is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
