So I’ve been floundering for a couple of months. A bit. Nothing new, really – so much to do, so little time. It’s a not-so-good thing that I’m not great at optimising my time, due to further not-particularly-new-or-unique reasons – too tired after work to write, kitty to be played with, songs to be sung – the usual.
But now, I will at least have a valiant/vain attempt. Weekdays without evening commitments, be ready. Hopefully getting it down will help with sticking to it – or trying, at least. Just imagine I have an approximate tilde before every time …
6.30 – get up
6.30 – 7.15 – morning chores and readiness for work
7.15 – 8.00/8.15 (depending on bussing or biking) (or – 9.00/9.15 when I stop working overtime) – work on Treading Twisted Lines
8.00/8.15 – 8.54 (or 9.00/9.15 to 9.54 without overtime) – bus or bike to work
8.54 (or 9.54 without overtime) – 18.00 – do the work thing
18.00 – 18.45 – bike or bus home
18.45 – 20.30 – evening fooding, cleansing, chores, etc (maybe a bit of relaxing?)
20.30 – 23.00 – work on editing and reworking Embraced (first novel)/work on new novel, working title Shimmer, Child of Light/work on other projects. Alternate as necessary. But not on the same night. One night, one project. Things will get too muddled, otherwise …
23.00 – fall asleep instantly. I’m not so good at falling asleep, either …
We’ll see what happens, anyway. Given it’s one of my nights without evening commitments, I’m already flouting this – haven’t showered yet. And I suppose anything related to blogging/social networking/self-publishing/looking for not self-publishing agent-publishing people gets crammed in where it fits. Or relegated to weekend time. Not projecting this will last long. But at least it’s an outline. It’ll be good to use what time I have more wisely (if a bit ambitiously) while I still have that time. Am I an adult, after all … adult-ish, anyway. When the time comes for doing adult-ish things, I’ll probably laugh to even remember this post.
