The life of a working adult is busy, and writers are no exception. If anything, we’re busier than the average adult.
My to-do list today literally looks like this:
- buy drano
- get gas
- wash dishes
- fill out forms for summer camp
- clean car
- put clothes away
- finish outlining book one
- edit chapter 9-10 of sister’s fantasy parody
- pick up child from school
- go to gym
Yup, just your typical to-do list . . . if you’re a writer, anyway.
A non-writer’s list stops at put clothes away, freeing them to watch Netflix or pursue some other pleasure in their–what’s that word again? . . . oh yeah, free time.
A list certainly helps categorize, order, even prioritize chores that need done, but a calendar is so much better. Join me Tuesday for my next Tuesday Tip which will be all about making a writing/life calendar. Guaranteed to help you turn your to-do’s into already done.
What does your to-do list look like? How many writing vs non-writing items are on your list? How many can you check off in a day?
