In the spring of 1884, momentarily toying with the notion of a physician trying to write a play, he filled seven pages of his notebook with a list of potential characters, including “Rectum Jones” and “Scrofula St. Augustine.” Mark Twain online museum.
What about you? Do you track your time and activities? Your writing? Your creative ideas? How?
Do you use a pocket notebook? Electronic notes? I love hearing from you. Please talk to me.
First Quarter 2012 Plans, Week 10
For all my ROWing friends, I’ve placed a blog hop at the end of this post to make it easy for you to find and encourage a fellow ROWer.
Progress Last Week
Family Time gets a green light.
Banjo Practice gets a red light. Oh, Pooh. I’ve been sick for a while and it was either banjo practice or writing. I like my choice. I’ll get back with it this week.
Fiction writing gets a green light.
Non Fiction gets a green. I sent out three stories in answer to calls for submissions. Hoping for acceptance.
Social media gets an orange light not for too little or too much time spent. I’m still working out how to arrange it, prioritize it and spend one hour per day.
Plan For This Week
Family Time – Work ends at 4 every day.
Learn the Tenor Banjo
Practice once a day
Read in my craft book. I’m waiting for Bell’s Plot and Structure to come in the mail. Excited!
Fiction Writing – Before 8:30 A.M., M-S
This is going so much slower than I hoped. The learning curve is very steep for me. Discouragement tries to take hold of me but I’m pressing through it by reminding myself that novel writing is hard work that I enjoy. It is not a creative outlet that is a hobby.
Non-Fiction – 1:30-4, M, T, W, F; S- 8-1
Write and mail FOF stories, Deadline -March 15.
Write 2 posts.
