For myself. In light of all the things going on ever since last quarter and the start of this quarter I feel as though I need to set up some ‘requirements’ for every single day starting tomorrow. These are going to be things I’m going to do no matter what as a way to not only increase my writing productivity, but to increase my reading productivity as well. I am far too behind in my reading and I’m not happy about it. I can’t read nearly as fast as some, who are reading a book every other day, but there shouldn’t be any reason why I can’t read a book a week, and so here are my new standards and requirements for every day of the week:
- Write 2,000 words. Period. Even crappy words. Doesn’t matter. I just have to write.
- Read 100 pages. Should be easy enough. I read 100 pages tonight and intend to continue that. I have five books from publishers/authors right now, and I should be done with at least three of them. I’m done with being behind. Time to catch up and get things done.
I’ll also have a per month list. I need to do certain things to keep myself on top of my writing game, because that’s what you do if you want to get published right?
- Edit two short stories or two novel chapters. I need to start getting things in tiptop shape for publication.
- Submit at least one story a month, preferably two. Same as above, basically. I have three stories out there already, but I should really learn to keep on top so I can really get myself out there and possibly get published.
I think those are easy enough to follow, don’t you?
