Writing Procrastination

Progress vs Procrastination

Today I argue that procrastination can be necessary for progress. Last week was tough. I’ve learned when I have those sorts of weeks that I need to take time for self-care. But… What about the book? What about the publishing date I have in mind? What about this? What about that? I need to work, …

Weekend Plans - Week 9

Weekend Plans – Week 9

I love weekends…usually. This weekend is a little different because I have to work the day job on Sunday. It’s rare we need to work weekends, but it happens a few times a year and this is one of them. That means I only have today to work on author stuff. I’m going to focus …

Make Today Ridiculously Amazing

Today Is a Good Day

So how did I do this weekend? Short answer: Not so great. Family drama sidelined me, so I’m reminding myself that progress not perfection is important. The weekend wasn’t a total wash, however. I did manage to write 5000 words in Seaside Valleria 3, mostly through dictation (I wrote more about that in a recent …

Happy Weekend Week 4

Weekend Plans – Week 4

Another week, another weekend. Here are my author-y plans for the days ahead! You’ve probably noticed a pattern about my weekends, and that I’m working on the same books. When we’re close to crunch time (i.e., publication date) that’s typically how it goes. It’s different in the editing phase, because once the book’s in the …

Didn't Finish That Project

Weekend Progress

So, how did the weekend go? I didn’t get as much done as I wanted to, but then again I always set the bar really high with my task lists. I think I’m going to work on setting ‘achievable’ tasks lists this year. Starting in a few weeks. Probably. I did get some editing on …
