My Goal: 1 hour, but minimum 30min of writing fiction during workdays and 2 hours any day I’m not working.
Previously on the ROW80 update, I mentioned getting a smart phone and it has proved to be a wonderful tool to waste time with. Haven’t found any writing apps I like, but I did find an awesome comic book reading app. Priorities. Haven’t read the instructions much, just hitting buttons (Which explains why it took me two days to figure out the beeping it was doing was my email alert.) and seeing what happens.
My week wasn’t totally phone madness, I did write. The chapter is going well. This one is a complete rewrite because what I had originally no longer fit based on the changes I made in earlier chapters. On Friday, it was going a little slow. I decided to try out a writing playlist I’d been working on. I told myself to give it a half hour more before calling it quits for the day. When I put the music on, some switch in my head must’ve been flipped because I was off writing well beyond my half-hour until I was so hungry for lunch I had to stop. I’m not sure what it was about this playlist except all the songs I picked have a lot of energy to them and I guess it put my mind in the right “zone” to be creative. As a wise woman once said, “Yay to the Yay!”
What gets you in the “zone”? Is it music or something or someone else?
