Write whenever you can!

I worked 8 1/2 hours today. For the first four hours, they put me in “the hole” where I just stood there and took orders and gave change. We were under-staffed, so during the lunch rush the cars were going through the line really slow, meaning that I had time between orders where I couldn’t do anything but wait. I stole a pen from the office and started writing on a blank receipt roll.

Water bottle for scale (and to hold it still on the couch while the fan was on).

It’s not a whole scene or anything (that would’ve required a REALLY long receipt), but I didn’t need to write a whole scene. I have two new scenes I have to write for Kiss of the Fey since I’m getting rid of most of the last four chapters, so there’s just a few things I have to add here and there. This will just go somewhere in the first few chapters; wherever I can fit it.

So even if you’re just writing a few ideas on a napkin on your lunch break, remember that you can ALWAYS find time to write.

  1. That’s so cool, I love it!
    I was wondering if I could include some of your words and photos from this post in a book I’m working on where real people who write share about writing. It’s to inspire people to write. It’s very visual with pictures of writing spaces and tools. So far 100 people are part of it and I’d love to include you. There is a section on writing tools and this would be perfect!
    Your name, age and location will be included and all credit goes to you.
    All good if you want to decline, just thought I’d check.
    Kind regards, JD

  2. When I used to work at walmart as a cashier, I would write ideas on receipt tape in between customers! Now that I’m in singapore, I ride a lot of public transportation. I bring my laptop everywhere and pull it out on buses and trains!
