I met a fellow Beaumont blogger last night at the Dixie Dance Hall. He's a very nice guy. Check out his blog. He quit his newspaper job to become a full-time freelance writer. I just know it's my job that's holding me back from making a career out of sitting in my fabulous townhouse in the French Quarter writing novel after novel after novel. But, I do like to eat, so work I must.
Of course, it might not be the job that's hindering me. It might be the one thing that has kept me from achieving greatness my whole life. I have a total lack of ambition. My motto is that of Frank Costanza: "SERENITY NOW!" In my quest for serenity, I have perhaps turned down my motivation meter so low that I'm so content with my life as it is at this moment that I don't push myself to achieve more.
The most motivation I can kick up this morning is to either go shopping for a new outfit to wear tonight or dust my computer room. I think I'll skip the dusting, go shopping and think about book ideas while I shop.
