Spare Time

I’ve finished my latest draft of my latest book. This is the first weekend that I haven’t had work to do for ages. And there’s even an extra hour as daylight saving just finished. I have spare time.
Most writers start off writing in their spare time while they work at a Proper Job. I did that for quite a few years. So when writing becomes your job (not a proper one obviously), what do you do in your spare time? The temptation is to write a bit more. Today I’ve done some gardening, learned some Chinese characters, people dropped in for lunch and its still only 2.30. Now I’m tempted to do some filing. I think I’ve forgotten how to relax.
