One week on

So here we are one week into my plan to be more disciplined around blogs and the internet in general and I can honestly say hand on heart that I did only visit blogland on Wednesday morning and just now (Sunday morning.) I wish that I could say that it made a difference to my output but it didn't really. No, that's not true, I did do some new stuff plus I polished a couple of things and submiutted those. So on reflection, I guess it was worth it because I did actually do something. Also it's all part of learing to be disciplined.
When I switched the computer in I did it with a purpose in mind and that helped. I went straight to the Word document that I wanted to work on and I did that. This week however I am researching a couple of articles so that will be a minefield of faffing possibilities. I also have something with a deadline of September 2nd to work on and I always find that an actual deadline from an actual editor concentrates the mind.
So that was my week and now I'm off to see what the rest of you have been up to.

Ah yes, an actual deadline does wonders doesn't it!

I'm battlilng with myself. I can spend an hour on the computer and make no progress at all. But I do find that maintaining my blog relationships is also important. If I don't visit, who will come and read me? Anyway, a list of tasks to do before I sit down would be a good idea - stick to the programme, you know? And there's a story to finish for Thursday......

I love a list Maria and that story for tomorrow is near the top of it.

I work much better when I have a deadline - that's why W2W is so good for my output.
