Today’s question - What steps have you taken or plan to take to put a schedule in place for your writing and publishing?
I have goals and plans for DLP, but I’ve made a more rigid structure as far as time devoted to each item and for how long. I’m a bit of a squirrel when it comes to distractions (think Hammy the Squirrel from Over the Hedge) so when a little item pops up, I tend to take care of it right away. I need to take care of it in its allotted time rather than trying to multi-task or stop what I’m doing.
Anyone else have that same problem? You’re part squirrel?
