Why is it that when I actually have the time to write/edit, I put it off and when I don’t have the time, it’s all I want to do?
Have you ever felt that way? I don’t know if it’s my procrastinating perfectionism or just laziness but it’s definitely getting old. I think one thing I’ve found is that even when I don’t feel like working on my series if I just force myself to sit down and begin, I usually get into the flow of it and make decent progress. I really do love writing.
That said, last week was a flurry of work, traveling, and birthdays. With a large family the birthdays never end. 😉 It’s been hard to make the time to work on my editing but I did get a couple of things accomplished that I’m pretty pleased with. I moved my writing space to another room, really needed the change, and set up my storyboards. I use actual cork boards because I’m technologically challenged and I just like them. 😉
Despite the hectic schedule, I did make use of my phone recorder and made notes about my book as we were traveling, eating cake, before I fell asleep, etc… And if I can decipher all of my mumbling and sleep deprived ramblings, I may have some new plot points to add to my series.
So, I guess all in all I did make some progress.
Do you have any tricks for getting things done when you’re busy?
What does your writing station look like? Post a pic below. I’d love to see. 🙂
