My company (or one of it's subsidiaries rather) just closed a 2.9 million dollar property deal. Champagne has been bought, all the principals are going to Morton's tonight for steak, lobster and much booze (about $200 a person worth). What do we lowly minions get. Nothing.

I got a 50 cent raise at my review (and my boss acts like this is huge) while my other bosses are spending this kind of money on food and $20,000 on jewelry for their wives.

Fair? No.

But I have a job, family, friends, dogs and cats who love me.

Does that make it OK? Kinda.

Although in your eyes it might not seem fair that the big wigs get it all. At one time in their lives, they were the lowly minions. Be Happy that you DO have a job. Things could be worse... you could be living at home. Love MOM

I'm going back to the greatest cliche post before you started dumping filler in your blog. You and I have had this conversation before. Yeah, you should write, even if you have time at work. But stop focusing on a long term goal only, like writing a book. Go buy yourself a copy of the Writer's Market and start breaking up your writing into a 3-part cycle. You write something new, you polish it, you send it out for publication. As you create more than one work, the cycle will make sense. But hell, you've got talent, use it. Counting down number of posts you put out is meaningless. Think about it, who actually writes every single day (quality material) and doesn't publish? So in a nutshell, make your boss happy by picking a niche. Do that, and then focus on your real career gift: your writing.

Actually, they were never lowly minions, as they were born into money, all of them or inherited their multi million dollar businesses.
