Great Scott! It's February already.
We even managed to get the Christmas decorations down. Granted, it was a just two days ago. But we got 'em put away, by thunder. Now, it is on to the, uh, cat days of winter? That stretch of time where my part of the world usual gets a least one or two polar vortices of insanely cold air. The year also usually starts to take shape with the various irons in my various fires.
My way of keeping all that proverbial metal hot involves a whole lot of to-do notes to myself. In the case of the latest work in progress, The Game War, I just write a sticky note with the page number goal that I intend to reach by the beginning of the next week. I'm sure I'll falter during some weeks. But so far, I'm doing pretty decent for my usual output. I'm up to page 56 with about 15,500 words. I'm sure others have more copious output, but these incremental weekly goals help me to keep my head in the game.
What kind of techniques do you use to keep on task? Or if procrastinating is your thing, what's your favorite way of wasting time? Mine is watching educational Youtube videos or playing indie video games. All things in moderation, right?
