Page A Day?

Now that I'm in between assignments, I'm thinking I'll get back to my page-a-day work schedule that made up the bulk of the first draft of the manuscript. I'm also going to have to get back into the habit of writing on my own stuff instead of a) wasting time blogging and b) wasting time putting myself into an internet coma. Even if I stretch out a few sentences before failing myself in front of the television I'll at least get back in the habit of working on the book. Next to my family and my RRHB, writing is the most important part of my life. It's strange how the time slips away around it and I just can't get there these days.

Deep breaths, right?

I'm trying something similar. It feels good to at least have something written every day.

Best of luck!

I so know what you mean. Internet comas are a familiar happening for me lately.

Page a day is a perfect approach.

And I find that writing in the morning, before anything else, serves to give writing the primacy it deserves, and it means I'm not struggling to fit it in later in the day. Plus, a good morning of writing sets me up for a positive day. And I'm all about the positivity.
