Writing Goals, 20th August, 2017

 

Hi Everyone,

 

The weeks of the long summer holiday keep rolling along. Only a third of the holiday remains.

 

This also means the impact of limited time is really starting to bite. My blog schedule is holding up, but I feel the strain. Likewise, the packing is moving along, yet needs more attention.

 

Previously on Tales of a GM:

 

  • 90 mins – Primary Goal – Planar pdf
  • 1 hour – Social Media – Visit different Forums and write five posts or comments
  • 2 hours – Write, edit & post long blog article
  • 30 mins – Weekly Task – Plan
  • 1 hour – General Fiction

 

I made good progress on the planar pdf, with the third draft building into a much better book. A lot of work remains, yet time is not on my side. I guess my main goal was to keep the project alive through the summer. This aspect has been a great success.

 

However, the pressure of the workload, along with childcare and the game prep, is taking its toll. The blog schedule is packed through August, with the additional projects running alongside the usual features. As the packing of boxes increases over the next fortnight, I clearly cannot sustain this pace. The blogging schedule needs to be cut back.

 

Game prep was a last-minute affair this week. As ever, the cast of Heroes present in the game caught me out. Prep from last week will roll over to the next session, so nothing is really wasted. This week is a lot busier, so I must manage my time better. I have pared down the schedule to the bare minimum for this week:

 

  • 1 hour – Social Media – Visit different Forums and write five posts or comments
  • 2 hours – Write, edit & post long blog article
  • 30 mins – Weekly Task – Plan
  • 1 hour – General Fiction
  • Bonus – Planar pdf

 

This bare-bones schedule should give me the time I need for chores, and maybe game prep. Next week needs to be the same, as prioritize my time elsewhere. I look forward to building the schedule back up through the autumn.

 

See how I performed here

 

Wishing you a productive week

Phil
