So much to do... little time.

You all hear me on that right? I'm not the only one I know. I sometimes think this modern world with all its conveniences has life more busy. Well, we want it all don't we. And there is so much to choose from.

So I have to rethink the way I do things. I have to do this every so often because of the CFS. I'm getting things done, don't get me wrong, but I feel like I could accomplish everything in a more 'paced' way. A more balanced way.

I'm a night owl. I've stated this how many times over the years, but the world is not. This time of night - it's now 2.30am here-- is a time when I can get work done without phone calls or too much disturbance. But when you have appointments during the week like I had this week, it can shake this schedule.

So productivity vs practicality. Maybe I need to do a weekly plan. That way if on a day when I'm really tired, I can adjust things.

OK, so this week will be busy in my non-writing world, and therefore there will be less time with writing. While NaNo has been a bit of a bust (I've got about 6,000 words done) I am still writing and submitting and working. So that's a good thing.

I'm really happy with the way a new project is going. A paranormal romance novella.

So what do I want to do this week?

  • Write - work on the novella. It would be great if I can get the first draft done by end January (have to realise there is a little thing called Christmas and associated goings-on with that)
  • start 2nd draft - Gateway novella. I gave this a read through and I just need to fix a couple of plot points before the polishing starts, so a second draft is in order.
  • Short stories - fix plot pitfalls of clown story.
That should do right?

I do have other associated tasks to do with writing:
  • Hearts Talk project for Romance Writers of Australia
  • A banner design
  • Blogging and keeping up with blogs. Actually I have to review blogs I subscribe to and see if I should continue. It's great getting information, but I feel like I'm in information overload territory.
I'll see how I go.....

Until next time, take care.
