Wow. It's Friday. TGIF and all that. But...well, the week's almost gone and I planned to get so much more done that actually happened. Again.
Things started off well. I got almost everything on Monday's do-list done. Almost. Just a few things that rolled to Tuesday. Which meant a few more of the things on Tuesday's list rolled to Wednesday. Yeah, there were a few things that popped up that weren't on the list but really not that many. Everything just seems to take longer than I plan for it. Poor planning? Or maybe poor execution.
It wouldn't be so bad except I always get the things that other people are waiting for done first. Makes sense, right? Get those critiques off to the crit group, take care of those committee e-mails, get the correspondence and blogs and all that stuff out of the way first and then do the non-deadline items. Except right now, one of those non-deadline items is my WIP. Nobody waiting on those re-writes but me. Easy to let it slip to the bottom of the list. To roll over to the next day. And the next.
I know what I need to do, of course. Change my priorities. Set a writing scedule and stick to it. Put my writing first. I know this.
I know it.
I just need to slap myself around a little and get back on track. Anyone care to jump in and add a smack?
