I haven't been posting much the past two days because I had a deadline. Something I've been working on for quite a while. It's not a certain thing, just a maybe, and I wanted to give it my best. For that I needed to concentrate and to focus on my main mission.
It's funny, but I've just noticed the time has changed and it's now past midnight, which means I have gone a full day without posting. Something I promised myself not to do.
As much as I stress discipline, I find it the hardest to maintain. Not the discipline to write, but the discipline to be organized in my writing and do the million other things I don't like in the business. Like rewrites, like queries, like submissions, like keeping to deadlines.
I'm very good at keeping to deadlines if I have an assignment, but I suck at keeping to my own deadlines. For example, next week I wish to submit three stories I've been sitting on for a while.
I think that I'm going to take advantage of this blog and the kind people who read it and have a progressometer. Similar to what I've seen on other sites. Something that would track, publicly, how much I write, how much I've submitted etc.
I'll work on that on the weekend maybe.
I do feel the need to give an excuse though. I've had one of the lousiest winters and this past week the weather has finally been nice. I am indulging myself with occasionally sitting at a patio midday. But can you really blame me?
