|Release date May 2|
I've never written on deadline before. I've never promised books that I don't have the plot planned yet. Hands are trembling slightly.
Yesterday, I did the math, figured how many words I need to write each week. It seemed a better plan for me to do it weekly rather than daily. Life can get funky on a daily basis. I live on a small family farm and this year is our first to take our pickles out to market while increasing our output at the same time. And then there's the granddaughter and my mom who lives down in the valley. So if one or three days a week I don't write, I'll just have to double my output on another day.
I thought I'd share my schedule with you. My success hinges on a schedule. That's my personality.
|Working in the dirt attire|
5:30-8:00 coffee, email, promo
8:00-11:00 farm chores
11:00-12:00 shower, lunch, clean kitchen
12:00-5:00 granddaughter time (1-2 hours), write
5:00-7:00 dinner, clean kitchen (thankfully have a husband who cooks)
7:00-8:30 read and critique for my critique partners
Once the end of July comes, the pickling begins. I have NO idea how my schedule will work out. Wish me luck.
