Update | Making it Work

For every minute spent organizing, an hour is earned.


Update time! I’ve had a period now when I haven’t produced any words, at least not any story words. There have been blog posts and stuff, but the last time I wrote on a story was on July 21st.  

I’m gearing up to start a new story, though. I’ll be off work for a week, so I plan to get some words down. 

In July, despite not writing a word for the last ten days, I wrote 26.496 words. This leaves me with a total of 162.823 story words written this year. My goal is 250.000, so I’m 65.13% done 🤪 

There are so many stories I want to write, but the dreaded day job is stealing way too much time, and it looks like I’ll be working a lot this autumn. Unless a fourth wave of the pandemic hits and restaurants close and so on, of course. But I’m in Sweden; it’s unlikely anything will close. I’ll just have to suck it up and do the best I can. There is always the weekends, right?  

I don’t know how other authors make it work. I think I’ll have to take a course in writing while working a day job LOL. And you should know, I’m a disciplined person. My life is colour-coded and deadline-infused. If I say I’m gonna do something, I will. It’s just my brain sometimes has a hard time understanding there only are 24 hours in a day, and once we hit afternoon, my brain stops functioning as it should.  

But I’ll make it work! 

I hope you’re on track with your goals too 😊
