I went back to Sucky Day Job yesterday… I am out of shape. Ugh. I woke up for work today completely sore from head to toe. It was reminder that I don’t do enough on my own to stay alive.
I’ve never really taken care of myself. I am a pretty naturally healthy person. I don’t get sick much, I don’t tend to have a lot of accidents. But I have a horrible diet, and an even worse personal lifestyle. I eat like a picky five year old. This is where a lot of time management issues stem from as well. That’s why I’ve been reading a lot of books that deal with that. I’m trying to get ideas to encourage myself to be better.
I woke up 45 minutes later than I planned today, so I’m kind of in a time crunch to get some things completed before I have to eat and start getting ready for work.
One of those things is to sit down and write, because if I stay on target, I’m on track to finish this book by August 10. I’m super excited to talk about this book, and people have asked about it, but I have this rule that I can’t talk about the book in the zero drafting stage because it’s never certain if it’s a book that I’m going to finish in a timely manner, which makes blogging about it super hard.
For example, I’ve actually been working on this one, in one form or another, for a little over two years. In that time, I’ve scrapped it six times. I’ve probably written the equivalent of four books trying to write this one. I’m finally sailing along on it, and I hope I get it done, but it means I keep it close to my chest until I’ve got a complete zero draft.
Okay. Time for a shower, and then I’m off to write until it’s time for work.
