Writing time!

As in: I need to block out some Writing Time!

The problem with having so much unstructured time right now is that I end up using all my time on things like laundry, household errands, etc. I know. Cry for me. Poor me and all my unstructured time. It won’t be like this forever. In the mean time, I’m trying to work out how to get back into the discipline of writing every day. Something. A few pages, a few paragraphs, a few words, if that’s all I can do, but something every day.

Has anyone ever made that work? How did you train yourself to do it?

Here’s what I’m going to try: a productivity calendar. I don’t have a year’s calendar, but I did just get a pretty new monthly calendar and a lovely purple gel pen to mark the Xs for every day I write. The calendar starts on July 1, and so do I. I’d like to see how many days out of the 31 in July I can get some writing done.

This sounds like a challenge opportunity. Anyone else out there want to declare July 2009 our very own National Writing Month? Celebrate with drinks in August?
