I love how I have turned some of my most tempting distractions into articles. I'm beating the system by writing about antiques and collectibles of all kinds. My favorites though are articles about coins and glassware. I'm fascinated how some china and decorative glass can be worth thousands of dollars. At least this all works in my favor... sometimes I can't stop writing.
Two problems have also stemmed from this: I'm interested in coin collecting again, which becomes an expensive hobby because I no longer spend pocket change, and I tend to spend too much time researching and not enough time writing. But I think I'll be able to work out a good balance this week so I can maximize my writing time.
