I’ve decided to start a new regimen. I’ve got a new job, I no longer work at Starbucks so I never again have to wake up at 4AM, I usually get to work by 10:30 or so and stay till around 7. It’s a good job, so far, I love it. But in a way I miss the things that happened to my mind when I was forced to be conscious at an unreasonably early hour. I’ve been, overall, less creative and less productive with writing. Even my Tweets have suffered because I’ve got this blasted morning muse that I can’t seem to switch over.
So I’m off every Monday and Monday shall now be my creative day, the day on which I court my morning muse and get things done. I will not allow myself to eat or watch movies or leave the house until I have blogged and written. I’m starting with a goal of 500 words and intend to increase it. I find that it’s better to start small because otherwise one gets discouraged and falters right at the start.
So here’s the plan,
- The newsletter will be far more frequent
- The podcast will actually have new episodes
- This blog will be a little more about my life and thoughts
That’s a start and a good one. And hopefully this inkling of productivity on Monday will lead to more throughout the week. Another perk of my job is that I get to sit at a desk with a computer with internet access so it is conceivable that I can create from there. UNMITIGATED JOY!
So I’d like to thank both of you that are still subscribed to this blog, there will be more, it will be better. I’ve felt like the biggest hypocrite, I made this thing that helps writers to write and I hardly write at all. The meandering tone of this blog post makes me want to delete it but it’s going out their and I’ll just have to keep adding better and better words to make up for these.
Thanks and stay tuned.
