makes me happy on a fall day
When I plan to do something, I do it. I made a commitment to myself to write every day. And until last Thursday I did. Even if it came to the end of the day and I was getting ready for bed, I would write.
I will keep working until the work is done... and the work never ends. So when I turned off the computer last Thursday night, I opted to not turn it on again until Monday morning. I needed a rest from screen.
Screen makes a lot of lines fuzzy. I can go from writing to shopping to snooping (er, I mean social media). I am highly distractible. Especially when I am tired. From doing all that work that never gets done.
How am I trying to apply what I've learned?
- Spending the evenings knitting rather than with the laptop.
- Re-examining the wisdom of writing EVERY day.
- Scheduling time in the afternoon to write, or pay bills, or shop (so that I have more bills to pay).
- Learning the art of using 'drafts' when blogging - so that I can have more than one I'm working on, and am not constantly working on the one that will be published.
- Sticking to that time.
These are just ideas, and I'm honestly not sure how long it will take me to apply, how long I will remember the goal... but it's a good start to some good thinking.
