The Reason I Write for A Living

I write for a living so I can stay home and set my own schedule. It's rather challenging at times to fit enough hours in the day, but the reason I want to stay home is certainly a good one.

what do you mean it's not a hat?

I am home so that I can care for the numerous needs of this adorable little one. She is my youngest, and she is autistic. (Ignore the date, it's wrong. She hadn't even been conceived yet.)
Why do I write?
  • I don't care for the traditional workforce. I've worked in it and there was always someone that didn't half do their job, and getting days off when things were actually important took an act of congress. No one listens to what you need.
  • The pay isn't always comparable to the work, that's true no matter what you do.
  • There is a sense that if you answer the phone on your day off you are supposed to say yes to their need whether they attempt to meet yours or not.
I think my kid is far more important than working just because someone else doesn't want to. Well, it's dusty in here and I'm still on a rampage to get it cleaned up.

The statue was becoming discolored from the rain, green and blue blotches were everywhere. Frustration was taking its toll on the artist as he tried to match the original color with only an ounce left in the can. The feedback on the original concept had been mixed at best and now the rains had left him with a disaster threatening his career.
What is the statue of? Why is the discoloration causing the creator so much concern?

Hot Flash!

“No, it’s too hot.”
“You’re delusional, it’s fine.”
“Not it’s too hot.”
“It’s a tub of ice. It is a reach to say it is hot.”
She walked away and left him sitting there to think about what he was actually trying to say.

Flash in the Pan: Regress

Up, down, right, left.
The motion was making his hands numb but he was determined beat the game once and for all. The idea that he could not make it to the end of the level by the time they called him to dinner was unacceptable.
“Is that all he does all day, at 40?”
“What caused him to regress?”
“He knows he’s dying.”
What is he dying from would cause him to regress? Is he actually regressing or simply in denial?
