    LOL. My mind is almost always on writing (or editing, plotting, outlining, or character profiles), but somehow, I need to figure out how to make time slow down. October is HALF OVER! Only 2 1/2 months until 2016. How can that be? Where did 2015 go? 😀

    You are right in that kids have little control over what they look forward to, but they seem to enjoy it even more because of it. For me, holidays are a lot of work and stressing over the budget when lots of gifts are involved (and because I hate shopping, lol).

    It’s terrible, but the thing I most look forward to every day is just feeling rested enough to write. When I don’t, it’s very hard to concentrate. Have I mentioned that I hate wonky thyroid glands? 😀 😀 😀 But yes, writing is one of the things I love the most – after the people in my life.

    Sorry about your headache. I’ve been dealing with those the past couple of days – because I had half a cup of ice cream two days in a row. My brain appears to prefer frozen yogurt. 😀

    Honestly, I thought you were going to take this in the direction of, “Delay instant gratification of sales in return for longterm pay off.” LOL I think my mind is constantly on writing.

    One difference I’ve noticed between kids looking forward to something and adults looking forward to something is that with kids, the things they are looking for are things out of their control. With us, we get to control what our big events are. To me, that’s exciting. I look forward to writing every day when I get up, and the day actually drags if it turns out to be the kind of day where I can’t write (thanks to external forces). Like today. I’m stuck doing everything else. *sighs* All I want to do is play (write), but I have to make dinner. And thanks to a headache and a lot of distractions all day, it’s not bound to get any better. Waiting for tomorrow is taking forever. LOL
