It’s Saturday, and I don’t want to do this. Like, not even a little.
So far today I have dropped stuff off at the storage building, gone to the arts/crafts store and the grocery store. I’ve made 60 cupcakes in 3 types (one type gluten free) and made two types of buttercream frosting. I have a super soft birthday party to be to in 2 hours, and I need to shower and get dressed. I am annoyed about doing this.
So very, very annoyed.
But, I’m doing it. I guess.
Today the book talks about getting good at doing the small stuff. In specific things like checking markets, using a submission tracker makes sure you type up your handwritten notes and keeping good notes and to-do lists. I actually do ok at most of this, I don’t do the searching markets as often as I should, but when I do it’s well organized.
I learned years ago that the time spent keeping a planner, keeping lists and notes is way less than the time you waste trying to figure out what the fuck you are supposed to be doing.
Speaking of what I’m doing, I just found out yesterday that my new job starts on Monday, That is going to make doing this pretty damn hard. Oh well, I guess I’ll figure it out. I need the money so I’ll make it work.
I’ll try to work on the poetry some more, but I’m not feeling much in a poetry mood.
I got a little more done on one of the poems I’m working on. I think I’ll have one of them finished tomorrow. Hopefully, I’ll have at least 2 before the 27th to submit.
Totally writing time today is 42 minutes, that is sort of sad.
