I first thought that I would probably slack off more, play some video games, watch more movies, etc. This led me to think about how boring that would get after a few days of doing that. I used to do it a lot when I was younger, but now I would rather be doing other things, like writing. Then I thought I could spend more time doing outside things, like riding my bike, skating, playing with the kids, just general exercise activities, but then I realized that I do that, maybe not that much, and we live in Oregon, so it rains a lot. Who likes to do that stuff in the rain? Not me. I would rather be inside reading or writing.
So after much thinking, I think I gave it about an hour of thought before I posted this blog.... maybe only fifteen minutes, but who's counting? I blame it on the kids distracting me. I think that if I wasn't a writer, I would probably spend that time creating something else, painting, directing short films, or something else that was creative in aspect. I realized that I'm someone who really likes to create and entertain others and just so happen to choose writing as my outlet.
What about you guys? If you weren't a writer, what would you do with all the extra time? Would you use the energy in other productive ways, or would you be a slouch? Let me know in the comments, my curiosity is tingling.
Have a great weekend and don't forget to vote in the poll please.
