Well, returning to work has been tough on my energy level and general motivation. As in, I didn’t get anything done this week.
In part this is due to general disorganization (and a stupidly large amount of stuff on my non-writing to-do list that I just don’t feel like handling… leading to copious amount of time wasted on the Internet.)
There’s one cure for that: an OFFICIAL TO-DO LIST!
So, by next Monday, I must:
1-Write 500 words on Book the Second. That’s a ridiculously low bar. But it’s a reasonable target given the rest.
2-Finish the last details I wanted to do on the Book the Second tech bible. That’s just copying manuscript notes into the Word document, so it’s a “whenever I have time” task.
3-Another Bonus Creativity post. I already know what it will be about, so it should be a couple of hours top.
4-Review my agent list – just basic maintenance work, again a matter of minutes.
5-Formalize my notes on e-publishing, and plan my blog post(s) on the matter.
Five goals. The passing grade is 3/5, but completing task 1 is mandatory. Let’s see how well I’ll do.
