Earning Fun

Why do I feel guilty about doing fun stuff?

I tell myself that I have to earn it. Can't read a book til I do my chores. Can't play til after I'm done working.

But I just found myself applying this to my writing time.

Okay. I haven't had writing time in several weeks (and it has been driving me crazy). So I'm accustomed to not having it. But dammit, writing time isn't a treat. It's a necessity.

I wonder how I got into this earning-treats mentality.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm not allowing myself to do any housework until I get 1,000 words on First Light, First Fire out.
