I read another bloggers post on this subject today. He confirmed what I’ve always believed. Blogging IS writing. Duh.
Now I just have to convince Hubby. I tell him I’ve been committed to writing each day. He thinks I’m only referring to my Novel and asks me how many chapters I’ve finished. Yikes. I have no answer for that. Even Bestie’s on my case about it. It was discussed during the procrastination portion of last night’s phone call. They are my biggest fans and strongest supporters, so I know they mean well, but… Ugh.
I haven’t actually written anything in my Novel for months. I am honestly thinking of scrapping and starting over again. I know, I know… I hear you. But the last time I re-read it, it didn’t sit right. I think it lost its way.
Here’s what I’ll do… I love schedules. I’m going to devise a writing/blogging schedule that will include Novel time. And maybe I’ll post an excerpt of Novel just because I am a feedback whore.
7:30 Wake up, dress, coffee, breakfast, FB, Words with Friends.
8:30 Start laundry or dishwasher. Read blogs/write my own blog post. Obsess over stats and replies to my comments.
9:30 Write Novel. Email excerpts to Bestie. Perhaps post some to the blogisphere.
11:00 Lunch, TPIR, FB, Words with Friends
12:00 Workout and/or play with Lala & Loopsy
1:00 Shower, dress, Honey-Do list
3:00 GH, FB, Words with Friends
5:00 Dinner, Lala & Loopsy baths, FB, Words with Friends, converse with Hubby.
8:00 TV time and then bed.
Sounds doable. Notice I’m not leaving the house or really interacting with the kids much. I suck. Need to revise. Maybe I should quit Words with Friends. Haha. Not.
