Consistency of effort plagued me for years. I now appear at the point of success. With four children in the home and duties to picking them up after school, I determined writing during the morning, afternoon and evening falls under the momentum killing ‘maximus interuptus’ category of writing.
This category is not conducive to productivity. Hence I currently glide past the bewitching hour with two more blissful, uninterrupted sixty minute segments on the way. I determined writing from ten at night until two in the morning would yield massive results, allowing me to do shorter work and more business related work during the day when i get up at ten in the morning.
My experiment with this schedule worked well last week. Now I put the schedule to the test and work all the bugs out of it. As long as I can write most of my creative work late at night, I believe I can produce volumes of work each day.
One point of interest to writers here – my word count so far for the month of January is around 37,000 words. My search for a workable schedule has paid large dividends in my commitment to write every day. The only day I have not written at least 750 word is New Years Day. My goal on December 31, 2012 is to be able to say the same thing.
Have a great writing day, and put some time, effort and logistics into setting your own writing schedule!
