my week in writing

Things keeping my writing happening this week:

1. Numbered to-do lists: discrete tasks, numbered so I don't have to make any decisions about what to do next when I finish an item.

2. Turning off the wi-fi. Amazing what I can do in a few hours sans wifi if I've had a good night's sleep. Usually, my so-called-breaks involve internet readings, so effectively they aren't a break for my eyes or my focus. But with the wifi off, my breaks involved actual mental break activities like jumping jacks and making a smoothie.

Reading This Week

Writing a novel via email—whoa! Part of me loves the serialized-esque nature of the writing process, and part of me thinks I should write more on the fly, using emails to myself as a way to freewrite.
