On the plus side, today I didn’t need Deb’s triage system to wrangle my email. Also on the plus side, the ringer on my phone is not broken. Or perhaps that’s not such a plus…
RESULTS: I started at 930 this morning (a victory in itself) and I eventually reached my goal, but it took the first 3 hours just to get through 5 pages of minor edits (which wasn’t the edits’ fault at all). I still wasn’t done by 5pm, and I’m sure I would have hung up my writing boots right then, but I’d made such a big deal yesterday, practically guaranteeing I’d reach my goal today, I couldn’t stomach having to come on here and eat my words. So I finished. After 10pm.
DEMONS: the telephone. I really don’t blame the 42 people who called. Clearly the bored landline demons got word that the email and Facebook demons had been highlighted here yesterday. They just wanted their moment of fame. The poor things get so little attention in this digital age.
•make family and friends aware of my scheduled writing time, and get them to buy in on my goals so I don’t get interrupted as often
•share blog addy with Fedex guy and mail carrier so they can follow my progress and avoid my house if I’m behind schedule
•don’t do any more laundry—that in itself will save time, as well as alleviate the need for repairs
EXTRAS: No, too tired
DISCLAIMERS: No, to tired
SPEECH BUBBLES: No, too tired
