Hey everyone, how are you?
It’s over half way through the week and I have not got as much done as I had hoped.
I wish that I could stay at home today and focus on writing. But I have to go out and see my key worker, then go on to the creative writing group. As much as I am happy that the creative writing group has started again, I just can’t see how I can fit it in today. The group runs for two hours and then it will take up to an hour for me to get home. By that time it is evening and I try not to write in the evening. As that is my time to rest and relax. Otherwise it will impact on my (already poor) quality of sleep. As I will just be thinking about all the things that I need to do and that will stop me from drifting off. Since I have stopped writing in the evening I have found that my sleep is slightly better. Although, this does not stop bouts of insomnia hitting from time to time.
The main thing that needs to be worked on is getting going in the morning. I am not a morning person and writing at that time does not come easily. But if I want to go to the group then I am going to have to write in the morning. It is a question of motivation more than anything. But this morning I am going to have to write. The writing that needs to be done is the same as in yesterday’s blog. It’s the PhD proposal, the online course, novel, book chapter etc. The list goes on. I was advised by a mentor to only work on two things max at a time. But it is hard to choose which two things as they all need to be done as soon as. It just isn’t letting up at the moment.
It is also really hard to not get distracted at the moment. I have mentioned before how easily distracted I can get. And I am being distracted mostly by my phone. To the point that I am thinking about putting it on “do not disturb” for a few hours and see if that helps. It is hard not to get distracted by things. I just need to zone in on what I am doing and be completely unaware of what is going on around me. Any tips on how to up the motivation, let me know in the comments.
Thank you for reading and I hope that you have a good day.
