Tutoring and working on my books take up a lot of my time but I still aim to send a piece of work out everyday. Sometimes this may only be a reader’s letter, other times it’s a short story or article. But I find it’s always a good idea to have that goal in mind. Over time, I’ve found that by adding structure to my working day and allocating separate time to my tutoring, my books and other work, I’m more likely to achieve that goal.
Of course, there are days when everything falls apart and nothing is achieved. Life has an annoying habit of getting in the way! So the next day, I’ll start afresh with my goal in mind once more and often I’ll have a more productive day.
So far, I’m on course this week but then, it’s only Wednesday and life may have something up its sleeve for tomorrow!
