SO yesterday I joined with my friend Samantha Tetangco for the Spring Writer’s March. It’s like NANIWRIMO but not. Check it out and join us if you like.
My goal: to write for 5 hours a day. That sounds crazy, especially to me. It’s not that I have not written five hours in a day before, but that I’m committing to doing it everyday. Each and every day during March.
Here’s my vision:
Awake around 7am-ish. Hang out in bed, listen to Morning Edition on KUNM
8am-ish. Breakfast, shower, Facebook, email…
9 am – 11:30 am WRITE. Put my butt in the chair and write. Note that writing will include: actual writing (either pen on paper or fingers to keyboard), reading (literature stuff– like for inspiration), editing, revising, submitting work, researching, and the obligatory staring at the computer screen.
11:30 am go to Yoga (if it weren’t for the construction project on my street, I could leave at 11:45am, but I never know how I’ll be able to get out of my neighborhood!)
1:30pm Home, lunchtime (check Facebook, email again), more writing…. in other words, during this time I have to get in another two and a half hours of writing. Should be do-able, right?
I’ll report back…
