There's not enough time in the day. I don't have any time. Time goes by so fast.
These are all sayings that most of us say everyday, but I'd like to offer a new one: I don't have any brain time left.
What does that mean?
Well, I have to say that I'm not as busy as I might like to think I am. Yes, I have the usual dishes, laundry, three kids to feed and clean up after. I work three days a week, and now my boys have started playing football, which is four days a week. Even though I'm busy, there is still time to sit down at the computer and do a bit of editing. There's time to take a notebook with me to practice and jot a few notes while I try to decipher which kid is mine. I could sneak in a half hour here or there to write something new.
The thing is, by the time I get to these moments, my brain is done. I can't think anymore. I can't decide where the proper place to put a comma is. I miss spelling mistakes, and character development gets the shaft. Thus my new saying: I don't have any brain time left.
Am I crazy or does anyone else feel this way? Do you try to push through or give up for the day?
