I think that I have found a reason--err, excuse???--for not being a more productive writer.
I have too many stories rambling around in my head. I want to write them all but instead, I write nothing.
So, in the spirit of NOW--my word for 2016--I am going to write them all--one day at a time.
I will write a minimum of 1000 words every day--five days a week--each dedicated to a separate project. The sixth day will be spent on typing and editing. And the seventh day will be spent on the wonder project. More on that to follow.
My schedule at work has become mostly fixed in which I work early on Sunday, Mondays, and Thursdays. Late on Fridays and Saturdays. Off on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
So, here's the the schedule:
Monday: Mistletoe Madness
Friday:Nobody Number Nine
Saturday:Middle Grade Project--I think I'll start with I Scream Of Genie
Sunday: The Accidental Terrorist
Each morning before work, I will read what I last wrote on that book to give my brain something to ruminate on while working.
On the days that I open, I will work 7:30-4 or 8-4:30. After work, I will take my notebook to Barnes and Noble and write until six--hopefully hitting my mark during that time. I will write even if it's crap. Crap can be fixed. Or so I hear.
On closing days, I will get up and at them--arriving at B&N or Panera before ten. Same rules apply--stay until 1000 words are done and the creative well is dry.
So, that is my plan. Wish me well.
