Ok peeps, what the heck am I gonna do about this? I seriously want to have a regular schedule each day, for writing and school work and reading. But I am stuck when I try to figure it out.
It does not seem it ought to be so difficult. I wonder if I have some kind of weird learning disability with relation to this issue as it has always been hard for me. I know most of us have trouble with so-called procrastination. But right now, it’s not that I don’t want to do it. I really want to do it. I am dying to dive in.
So I’m not sure what the issue is. I can’t seem to just get started or see where or how to block this out. I remember my dad, a professional writer his whole life, telling me that you have to make a time to write, a time to work, that you stick to pretty much the same way you would if you had an outside employer. You have to show up at a certain time and stay until a certain time. And work while you are there.
All the other stuff I read about writing and a writer’s life pretty much says the same thing. I feel that is true. So now, how to do it.
If any of you artists and writers and musicians and self-employed out there have any suggestions, please let me know.
Meantime, the classes are great and it’s finally raining in California, which makes me happy. The rainfall is not as high as predicted, so drought still looms on our horizon, despite the refusal of most to acknowledge it. I turn the water off while I’m brushing my teeth. That’s my little part for making the world a better place.
Okay, it’s 8:53 am. I’m going to have breakfast, do a hot tub in the rain, brush my teeth and start writing at 9:00 am. Work til noon. Maybe it’s that simple.
