Learning my schedule

Evidently I can’t write on Fridays.  And for the past two weeks, not on Saturdays, either.  This week, I also skipped Sunday.  Ugh.

I should be spending as much time as I can on the weekends writing – those are my only large blocks of time, but they are also the days that so many other activities are scheduled.  The past two Saturdays have been leave the house at 8 (or earlier!) and don’t get home (or done) until at least 9 or later.  Which means that after a full work week, a Friday night football game (because I DO live in Texas!), and a jam-packed Saturday, by the time Sunday rolls around, I’m mentally and physically exhausted.  Last week I was able to get a couple of hours in.  This week I read.  And napped.  Then read some more.  I needed it.

But I also need to finish this book.  So, I slept in this morning (getting up at 6 instead of 5), went to work, got a haircut, then went to my local chapter RWA meeting, and just now got my work in for today.  I worked from about 10:30 to 11:00 and had a net change of about 175 words as I edited a scene.  Not bad.  Not great, but at least I got it done.

Getting up early tomorrow.  I am re-stating my goal of finishing revisions by 12/31 and querying in January.  I set a goal the meeting tonight to have the ms done and at least one query out the door by our January meeting (1/20/15).

OMG.  2015.
