News: Got a buddy visiting, got school, and like all of you guys, I got Life. Typically, when I get swamped by minutiae, I try to apply the “guerrilla mentality” to the things I really like to do. I’ll explain: when I have big chunks of free time, I like to allot activity by goals instead of time, so I’ll put a daily goal together that goes along the lines of “edit 15,000 words today.” But when I have a lot of tasks or errands, I can’t do that, because who knows how long 15,000 words will take? Accordingly, I make sure my laptop is charged and ready, and I take it along with me to all my appointments, so if I find myself sitting around, I can knock out some work. If I get five minutes here, ten minutes there, then I can knock out a few hundred words here, maybe a thousand there. So that’s basically what I’ve been doing: taking my shots where I can, because when all you’ve got is small shots, you better take ’em, otherwise you’ll lose momentum. That’s my view on it, anyways.
Other than that, not much has changed—still grinding! If you guys are writers, then I wish you inspired drafting and insightful editing!
