Mapping Out Writing Time: The Early Bird Gets the Worm

So, rather than start my 30 day writing spree tomorrow, when the kids start school, I thought I’d start today.

Remember the deal? 2 hours of straight writing time (though I’ll also include book-related research, NO Internet research) on school days, for 30 days, no time wasting allowed.

I am a horrible sleeper, so I started writing at 5 am. Problem was, I couldn’t help it. I checked my e-mail, in case some incredible news migrated over in the middle of the night, which led to reading a few blogs and suddenly, 30 minutes disappeared. *Slaps forehead.*

Good thing I started my practice run today.

Make today count.

Consider yourself warned: I write books about rebels. I'm also a postergirlz for readergirlz, a literary advisory group for teens. Who knew going back to the teenage years would be so rewarding?
