Commuting every day during rush hour. Editing books on the train. Maybe someone spills coffee on your manuscript. Maybe someone gropes you. But you have the office, you have your dreams. You have a home with lots of light and a man you love to come home to. You drink some tea by the fireplace. Is there a fireplace?
Maybe a cat curls up on your lap. Course there’s jackhammering outside when you try to do yoga. But construction ends eventually. And maybe there’s an author who’s demanding and doesn’t understand commas. But another author will follow. We choose our best lives … or we try. We have to work with what we have.
