Tomorrow I’ll be back on my schedule, but today is for catching up all the things I need to do for the book I’m getting ready to publish. I could probably say I’m on the schedule anyway, except that I consider the schedule exclusive to writing, not publishing stuff. I’ll just take my break for lunch at the same time so I can keep up the habit.
With my next book, I’m going to be much more diligent about working around the schedule so I can keep writing even during the publishing phase. (It really depends on how much the schedule affects my word counts. If they stay high and I write as much as I want to be writing, writing through the publishing phase might not be necessary.)
Six hours a day, seven days a week is a good amount of work, so if I don’t have to add to that to reach the level of success I want, I’m going with that option. On the other hand, I really don’t mind. I enjoy what I do and would rather do it than so many of the other things I’d be doing instead. ;)
That said, this year, I’m not passing on doing my deck garden like I did last year (I grow tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, and other stuff in pots). I’ll be planting this weekend unless it rains me out. :D Maybe when the plants get pretty, I’ll post some pictures. :)
