So. Last night I wrote out a weekly BLOCK SCHEDULE. You know, to keep me on task and balance work and family and home and seasonal Girl Scout cookies. The good news is, the schedule looks fantastic on my wall. Très professionnel. The bad news is, I’ve already strayed from the path. But let us not despair. I’ve always found ‘bad starts’ to be nature’s good luck charms.
My 9:30-12PM block has one word in it: WORK. This will consist of writing, editing, reading, blogging, working on the website, etc. I’m only scheduling out 2 and a half hours a day because, at this point, I think that’s all I have in me. Cue the violins. Poor me and my writers block. But trying is trying. And slow progress is better than no progress. And daily inspirational quotes are for the birds. And Pinterest. But…F it.
