Where has all my time gone?
Well. (That's a deep subject, as my dad would've said). It's still there, but it's looking like a need to make a new schedule and adhere to that schedule more closely. Getting up earlier than usual (because I'm not a night person) so that I can fit in those few hours of writing. I still have revisions to do! I think I actually do better when I have zero time, because it makes me more productive. I only have that one or so hours a day, so I MUST write during that time in order to get everything done.
But it's going to take some time to get into that routine. I think I have to be okay with failing at doing everything at first. It's okay. But I can't do that forever. I don't like not writing. I want to complete this MS. I also have to get all my reading and assignments done for class. These are all things I HAVE to do. So I have to fit it in.
It's about making time. I no longer will just have free time. This means other things will suffer. I probably won't blog as much. I probably won't read as much outside of class (though I really can't give that up entirely because I'm addicted to reading). Those extra minutes will be for writing and revising. I also had this crazy idea of doing NaNo this year, something I've never done before. Will I be able to do everything? We'll see. One of the things about my goals, is that I like to challenge myself; set the goals really high so that I have to strive and not always make them. So I know failing happens, and while I'm not okay with it, I know that I can come back from it and continue on.
