You can set up your life so you can maximize your writing and production, and minimize time for other priorities. Eventually, though, life catches up with you.
Last week’s log:
For a total of 9,722 words for the week. Abysmal.
Monday and Wednesday were taken up with banking and financial challenges that came about unexpectedly, but required documentation and appointments at banks and a lot of rearranging of time.
Friday and Saturday (and Sunday, too, but I don’t usually expect to write on Sundays) was taken up with drop-everything-and-do-it-now cleanup and repairs to our basement and garage. The family circumstances evolved–also unexpectedly–less than a week ago, and we had to scramble to deal with it.
Actually, Monday of the next week (which is the day I’m writing this), I also didn’t write a word because I’m catching up with the fallout from this week.
You can’t schedule for these things. All you can do is roll with it when they happen.
