I just started this with last Wednesday's check in, I'm still trying to nail down a good schedule.
My objectives - and progress - are:
- edit two draft novels 90 minutes a day -- trying to do early every day, has been an hour for some, two hours other days. But do finally feel I am getting somewhere with the first one, my 2010 NaNoWriMo
- one short story challenge a week - did that, for last Friday -- link is here. Next one is a Valentines one I think, sort of an erotic horror
- read blog list of writers/editors 30 mins a day -- did more to catch up, but now ok-- get maybe 10-12 different ones a day to look at. If relevant to my current writing, I'll make a not of it in the appropriate story. If it really clicks, I save it the post.
I considered adding some non-writing goals, like more exercise and less local pubs. Nothing definite yet. After my morning editing I head over with my iPad to a nearby Bridgehead coffee shop. It's a brisk 20 minute walk there, and a comfy place to catch up on blogs, work on a short story, and people watch. Another 20 minute walk back, which unfortunately passes right by my favorite pub, so I think I need to change my route sometimes to reduce temptation.
