Tomorrow is a school day. The first day back after two weeks of vacation. Students and teachers alike dread the first day back. Students don’t want to work and the teachers already feel overwhelmed. Every year I tell myself that I am going to do this or that over the break to get a head after all I have so much time.
Oh, the lies we tell ourselves.
Like I am going to write everyday once I get such and such done. It doesn’t happen. Habits are easy to start and hard to maintain.
I have been writing more, but I have also been giving myself a break. A much needed one. There is just one more change to be made before Blood Child can be published. One tiny change that so far has been waiting on communication to sink up between me and the Createspace folks. So that is my goal for this morning to get the changes made to the manuscript and get it re-submitted by the afternoon with more specific instructions.
I don’t want to go back to school, but in an odd way I need to. My normally nine-to five (really 7:30 to 5:30) gives me structure and helps me focus. And that focus helps me get more done.
Back to school means back to the writing desk.
