Oh, that’s something we’ve all thought, right? I would be less stressed and have time for all of the things that I want to do. All of those projects would suddenly get done: the knitting, the scrapbooking, the mountains of little DIYs that I add to my Pinterest boards but don’t find the time to complete. I would be cooking and baking up a storm. I would have time for all sorts of art events and visits with friends. My house would always be clean and spotless.
Mainly, though…if I didn’t have to work, I would be writing up a storm. I’ve been making microscopically slow process trying to write my first novel, and I do blame my hectic work schedule. It’s very hard to come home from work in the morning, complete chores and errands and a half a dozen other to-dos, work on the blog, play with the cats, visit with the husband (if he’s not at work that day), and then sit down to work on a chapter. With everything in life, there is very little time to write–and when I do sit down to write, half the time, I’m too tired to even type.
As it is, I scrape out a few sentences or a few hundred words as often as I can, but the going is slow. Sometimes I think it will take me years to finish this book! But I’ll keep trying. Who knows, maybe someday I will be able to make a living from writing–and then I won’t have to work, because work and my hobby will become one. Wish me luck!
If you didn’t have to work, what would you be doing? Tell me in the comments!

My dad has been working on a memoir for about a decade now, I think! He’s just about finished with the final edit. I only mention this because, though it may take a decent chunk of time, you can accomplish anything if you just keep pluggin’ away! :) Good luck with your novel! As long as you’re enjoying it, that’s really what counts in the end!
Aw, thanks for the encouragement! <3 I guess it’s like the saying–it’s the journey, not the destination.
