Chapter 41: Thursday 13 October
The blank planner and diary spreadsheets I adapted and printed off yesterday seem to be working already. I’m more focused and ticking things off again. I’ve tried to go down the electronic-only route, but it isn’t working for me. I’m better with a hard-copy diary of sorts, preferably with time slots.
I’m still working through the weekly planners, to see which one of those I prefer. I use these when I’m doing my date work, which means the ones I printed for October 2022 are already out of date. As soon as I can fit it in, I’ll do the think/write/submit thing for 6 months ahead, which means if I was doing it now, I’d be looking at topical anniversaries for April 2023.
I worked until midnight last night, but don’t seem to have got through as much as I wanted and needed too. Instead of staring at a blank screen much of the time, I wrote up my new ‘diary’ for the week.
Today is ghostwriting, and it’s likely I’ll be working late. Short and sweet today, then, as I have a pressing deadline. I’m tired, but hopefully I’ll push through it and avoid too many distractions.
(Note to self: disconnect laptop from internet.)
