By this week, we should be doing three things on a daily basis:
Prepping for next week
This last one is going to depend largely on how much writing time you have. Do you need to prep a week in advance? Or only a day? The point is you never sit down to write without knowing what you’re writing, whether that’s MORNING PAGES, your current work in progress (WIP), or a job you’ve been hired to do.
This week we’re going to do a lot of writing, so I would start by prepping your sessions for this current week.
Here’s the schedule:
DAY 1: WRITE 20 min.
DAY 2: WRITE 20 min.
DAY 3: REST
DAY 4: RESEARCH
DAY 5: WRITE 20 min.
DAY 6: WRITE 25 min
DAY 7: WRITE 25 min.
As you can see, we’re upping our writing days and our writing times. Even if you’re resetting like me, I encourage you to follow this schedule. It’s easier to jump right back in than start over, but don’t let that stop you from starting over if you need to.
In other words, if your space has become a mess or your tracking system is off, feel free to take a step back and reassess those areas first. Still doing MORNING PAGES? That’s another place to start over.
This week I want to focus on diving back into where we left off. If you didn’t do MORNING PAGES today, do them now. Write your 20 minutes now. Do whatever it is you need to do in the time you have now. After all, it’s all we’re guaranteed.
See you next week.
