Another steady week. I’ve just realized that if I do settle into a productive rhythm, then these work log posts will become utterly boring.
But that’s actually a good thing. No drama, steady output–it’s what creativity feeds upon.
Last week’s log:
I fought with the plot of this new book quite a bit, as you can see. I should have started writing it on Monday, but took an extra five days to nail the outline.
That doesn’t stress me too much, because I am sure I will finish writing the manuscript ahead of time, anyway. We’ll see.
You’ll also note I don’t have Sunday on the log. That’s because I changed things up a bit after discussing it with the DH.
I have a number of other “hobbies” that result in practical output — making clothes is one aspect, and the resulting savings and quality of garments is hard to give up, just because I don’t have enough time.
So I made time. It was actually the DH’s idea–use Saturday as a “normal” weekday, which would incorporate the two hours I used to write on Sundays. Then Sunday can be devoted to other crafts.
This actually has the benefit of giving me a complete mental break from the current book. At least, I’m told taking a break is beneficial. We’ll see.
I do admit that I looked forward to Sunday all week. It helped me sit in the chair and keep writing.
Also, by making Saturday a normal work day, I’m actually gaining in writing hours. Not by much — but an extra hour per week adds up.
Meantime, back to work — all of us.
