I’ve got three weeks till I start the new job. That means three weeks to be a full time author.
I’m going to document this journey. Hopefully with a post every night, or a video on youtube. I haven’t decided yet.
It’s currently 12:30 and I’ve written 150 words so far. I’ve also vacuumed the floors, washed the counters, put away some things, and generally cleaned the house. Also spent about 3 hours this morning watching youtube and playing games. Productive… ya…
I talked about a mind shift yesterday. Well now is where I put that to the test. Mind shift incoming. Writing is more important than games and youtube.
Onto the writing!
PS… yesterday was my birthday. Gregg took me out and we had sushi and craft beer. It was a nice day.
I still find having a whole day to write hard, because 8 hours (or whatever) feels like long enough I don’t feel the pressure.
My strategy for it is to write between other tasks; that way I get the immediate success of ticking off vacuuming/&c. and chunks of writing.
That’s what I’m trying to do. Do the dishes, write a little. Do a book cover, write a little. I also wrote myself out the to-do list and I’m ticking off boxes on it. I just need to write in between the smaller tasks because I know the writing is going to take the longest, and not give me that high of completion right away. I’m hoping I figure it out this week.
