I still haven't technically gotten back to work yet. I've been spending a lot of time rearranging documents and setting up new documents & folders and creating lists of things using pretty colours and stylin' fonts. I'm making things easier for myself in the long run. Hmm.
I imported my blog feed list and it hasn't updated so I had to do it manually. How am I supposed to procrastinate properly if I don't know exactly when a blog updates? And really quick before I get back to boasting about how productive I am, it is be an agent for the day time again on Nathan Bransford's blog. I can't tell you how fascinating I find queries to be. I love reading them. Apparently I'm not good at picking the best one because the one I liked least is the most popular. :)
Back to me. I made myself a little daily writing planner. It's very cool and even includes breaks, forum lurking and blog hopping, all daily essentials that I need to get out of the way before I get to the good stuff. See, I know me - I know if I don't allow for things like that, I'll end up doing them anyway. Repeatedly. So it's better to make them part of the job. I separated my various writing tasks to keep myself on a strict schedule and onroute to a set target. When I complete a task, I fill it in with a nice shade of green. Just because. I felt like I had accomplished something big. A breakthrough on my way to becoming more productive.
Then I had a nap. A long one. When I woke up, it was late and I got distracted by some crushed ice. Then I wasn't sure if I should start at the beginning of my schedule or not. Then I remembered that I was supposed to try out that Storybook program and see what I thought about it. Then, then, then, then, then. I didn't get any real writing work done. I am a lot more organised than I was last week on the other hand. That counts, right?
