Overall Goal: Figure out my writing process
1. Read more books in my genre.
2. Read more books on craft and apply the lessons to my writing.
I’ve tried lists before and like everything else I try for the time, they didn’t go well. Probably because the list I wrote up should only have been tackled by an expert taskmaster. It was LONG.
I wondered if maybe I wasn’t cut out for lists, so I did an experiment at work. I checked out my assignments for the day and instead of organizing them in my head, I wrote them all down. Let me tell you, this made a big difference because I didn’t have to think about what to do next. I just followed my list and managed to finish my work early.
Okay, so lists work, but now I had to apply them at home. I kept it much smaller and things were going pretty well until I had to unexpectedly go to the auto shop for a new battery. Despite the setback, I’d seen the potential of a good list and plan to keep working on them.
I know Kait’s not the only person to suggest a list to me, but she was the first. She’s some kind of a smarty pants.
