I like doing things I can count up or check off. I like to be able to prove to myself that even though I am in the middle of the project, and will probably continue to be in the middle for a long time yet, I am still moving forward.

As long as I’m writing, the wordcount bar fills that psychological need. But when I’m editing, I flounder. Right now, I am editing.

In addition to that, I am struggling with the fact that I have many non-writing projects I want to be working on, and more than one skill I want to be developing. How do I keep everything organized, and on-track, and prioritized?

Right now my week-day routine goes something like: wake up, practice my french, eat breakfast, exercise, work until my brain is too tired to work (this usually doesn’t take anywhere near a whole day), futz around for the rest of the day—maybe on my various non-work projects, but as often as not just killing time.

I want badly to be getting regular music and art time in there too, but I’ve been having trouble motivating myself on the music end because I have no clear goals. And my current art project is at a non-artistic stage in the process, so that’s been an issue too. Plus it would be great if I could set aside some time when I am not brain-dead for coding. And I don’t want to neglect my tatting!

So…
Same morning routine.
Edit for only half my workday – (Change this into a wordage goal when I get back to writing)
Music – Goal: use Garageband to make recordings of my songs. One song every two weeks?
Art – Just get the Scent of Spring Coloring Book put together already! I can prioritize making art again when I no longer have a folder full of over a hundred ink scans waiting to be made into a book. So: 20 pages a week. At least.
Code on Fridays.
Tat one bookmark per weekend.

I think that’s doable. It looks doable. I may need to break the “one song every two weeks” down into smaller sub-goals, but everything else is pretty well defined.

I will give it a try and see how it works.
