I've been wasting so much time lately, I've now fallen back on the old standby - the egg timer. I set it for 15 min intervals to get up and do housework (which I hate.) I set it for 60 min intervals for writing. That way I put my butt in the chair and don't move until the times up. I seem to accomplish more and stay focused on what I need to get done.
I'd been doing well with my writing but I seem to have fallen off the daily writing wagon over the past month. I've been busy with the digital imaging class. My term assignment is due next week so that takes my attention away from my WIP. I'll be skipping the winter session at the community college and doing a couple of online classes instead. That will save me commuting time and the necessity of going out in bad weather.
I had a chat with myself over the weekend. And myself and I agreed that writing was a high priority in my life. I was letting other things interfere with it. So this week's goal is to get back into the daily page quota and get this revised MS out the door the beginning of Jan.
How do you manage your time so that you can fit writing in?
