Making time to write

Hopefully if I put my writing (and exercise) schedule in writing, it will make me feel worse if I flake out and don't keep it. Here goes:

Tonight:
Write through the scene where Charlotte drops Snoop off at the shelter
Journal
(Reward for doing all this: vodka cranberry and some knitting/TV time)

Tomorrow:
**Before work:
20 minutes of abs/arm workout
Morning pages
Brief meditation

**After work:
Write through scene where Charlotte goes back to the pound to get Snoop to eat

(Reward: Time to order honeymoon album; yes, I've been married for years and have neither a wedding or honeymoon album put together)

Wednesday
** Before work:
Morning pages
Brief meditation

** Lunch: Elliptical at gym

** After work: Write through the scene where Charlotte brings sandwiches to the pound

(Reward: knitting/photo album time)

Thursday
**Before work:
Morning pages
Brief meditation
Run with Chloe

**Lunch:
Read stories for Writer's Group

**After work:
Writer's group meeting

Friday:

My friend Gracie is in town from Seattle this weekend, so I will probably be spending Friday night with her.

Redo bedroom--I'll post pics of our new space once it's all set up. We rearranged our furniture, ordered a new bed (which will be delivered this week) and now need to move around pictures and get new curtains.

If you get a chance cna you post those questions you use for character interviews, or link back to one (I couldn't find it but I know you interviewed a character at some point). Thanks. T

Update: I already fell off the wagon by waking up an hour late this morning. I got in journaling, but no exercise or meditation. I'll have to try to squeeze those in tonight.

I find it so impressive that you can do all those thing Before work!
Morning people...I just don't get you. :)

It takes me 30 minutes just to make coffee and pee.

Don, that's my problem. I'm not at all a morning person, though I'm trying to get myself to be one! I'm too spent after work to do more than one thing (aside from the usual evening stuff like watch TV, eat dinner, straighten up, walk Chloe, etc.) So I'm trying, over and over, to convert myself to a morning person...

Why is vodka and cranberry only in there once? ; )

Good for you for fighting the good fight to be a morning person. I just gave up.

That's the one. Thanks, Bug. I'm going to interview a character right now.
