This week I'm deeply inspired by all of the folks who can create schedules for themselves and stick to them. Lately I've been feeling very restless. Maybe one or two of you might have noticed how many times I've changed my blog layout in the past month. My willingness to blog almost every single day has left me feeling a bit fatigued.
I'm starting to feel like my blogging is keeping me from the things that are more important like my writing and spending more time with books. I started two books months ago and never finished them. I started a new novel, and I'm still at the same word count I was last week. It's funny when I first started writing I did it with so much vigor. Now I can barley write a word without refreshing my blog page. It has become kind of an obsession, an obsession that needs to end. I need to unplug. I need to be more productive.
I know many of you have certain hours of the day set aside for writing. I've always enjoyed writing in the morning. There are things I'd like to improve, like learning to write more words in a shorter amount of time. I do find I write faster when I'm using Written? Kitten!. As of now, I don't think I'm going to keep myself on a strict schedule but some structure would do me some good.
In fact, I'm really looking forward to it. It'll be a nice change.
A few things I'd like to accomplish:
- Finish reading the books I've started
- Finish cleaning up my manuscript
- Have my first draft completed by the end of April (Camp NaNo)
As always, thanks for reading, commenting, and being so awesome. If you'd like to join the blog hop visit the Linky List here. And if you'd like to feel more productive too there's this great online tool called Wunderlist I like to use to set goals.
