Wednesday 9 October 2019

The morning went well yesterday, starting with me writing up the day’s Pomodoros. I was out on Monday afternoon and didn’t have time to do it at the end of the day. 

I wrote my daily blog post and I wrote up the report for the writers’ group. Then I settled in to some writing for the Cadbury book.

For the morning session, I managed 1,550 words.

Then the afternoon began and I spread out all of my notes for the copywriting job. I stared at it all for a while, and then did what I always do when I can’t get started with something. I did something else.

I spent much of the afternoon tidying up my Facebook ad preferences, removing so-called ‘likes’ and ‘follows’ and ‘clicks’ I’d apparently instigated. (Didn’t.) I removed around 50 ‘friends’ who are either inactive (for whatever reason), or they don’t interact with me or post anything useful or interesting. Some I just plain couldn’t remember. And then I went back to 2009, 2010 and 2011 and removed a load of posts and more ‘likes’.

I had another look at the copywriting job, but still couldn’t get going, although I could feel a bubble of percolation at the back of my mind and decided to sleep on it.

This morning I started with some handwriting practise. I made a load of notes on Monday, both for the copywriting job and for the writers’ group, and my writing was atrocious. So this morning I spent a few minutes and practised my handwriting.

Also, over breakfast in fact, I wrote up today’s Pomodoros, as I didn’t write them up again at the end of yesterday.

Today, aside from this blog post, I have more work to do on both the Cadbury book and the copywriting job. Instead of a social media fix today, though, I’m going to revive my daily competitions. After I’ve completed a good day’s work, I’ll run through the competitions as reward, as it’s quite relaxing.
