Help, I need some help, pleeease....help me.
Last Monday I forgot my phone at home when I went to Barnes and Noble to write. I also didn't have a watch on.
So--essentially I had no distractions and nothing to track the time. Fortunately I didn't have any plans for the rest of the day.
Especially because I spent almost four hours there and wrote nine pages. Nine pages!
For me, that's quite the accomplishment.
Apparently if I don't allow myself to be distracted, I can be quite productive.
Have I done it since?
I think for the most part I was more writing productive when I had a job to work my writing around. I've always been a person who works best under pressure. Or maybe I just say that because I procrastinate until I have pressure and I don't have a choice. Vicious cycle.
But being a lady of leisure, I don't have to fit my writing into my day. I can do it whenever--first thing in the morning,mid-afternoon,at night. In which case, I procrastinate until I'm too tired or have plans.
After almost six weeks of not working, I still haven't figured out a schedule--except for not turning on the television or taking/making a call to my sister, Wendy.
So, I come to you writing pen in hand, and ask--how do you make it work? Any organizational or scheduling advice taken.
