It has been a few days since I blogged, but that is because I have been chugging along and flopping in bed exhausted each night. I am very happy to say that I have begun editing People of the Sea again. Last night I had to get back out of bed to jot down the changes I planned for today!
You know what is weird? I would have never thought that this would work for me, but I have planned a week or two in advance what project I am going to work in each day. I have never had so many projects - and types of projects! - going at once. It was too easy to put off editing by working on other things, and I'd accidentally let weeks slip by without beta reading. One thing that has made my writing calendar possible is that I understand more than I used to about my writing needs, like how long I can work on one thing before I need to switch gears and let that project recharge.
I gotta say, though, that not having the regular old internet can be a pain in my rear for certain projects. Submitting stories? Yeah right! Fewer distractions is great until I want to do something like that and then it will take twice as long or not work at all. Eh. I want to figure out how to make it to the library more often, sans kids.
