I've got the day-job blues and can't seem to write when it's time to write. Any helpful suggestions?

I found thinking about my next scene helped a lot, gearing myself up to write it. I write a lot of scenes in my head, then by the time I can get them on paper, they are close to what I need without a lot of rewriting. Staff meetings are great for this- kind of like directed dreaming. :)

Of course I bounce from novel to poems and back so I have a diversion that is still writing. Not to mention reports, blog entries, letters to my brother, etc. Writing is writing, even if the boss thinks you're weird for writing case notes in iambic pentameter...

--smile-- thanks for the tip. My problem is, the phone keeps ringing as I'm supposed to be responsible to this business 24/7. It's real hard to concentrate when you know your brain can be kidnapped at any moment. But! My lap-top is on its last leg, so now I have an excuse to go buy one that is more portable [the 6 year-old model is heavy and I can't find batteries for it anymore, so have had to stay near an electric outlet for over a year now]. Hopefully will go shopping for a new laptop within the next week, then I can get away from that *#*#* phone!
