Not As Productive As I’d Planned

My aim of having a productive day yesterday was quickly scuppered. Firstly I had to go and assist in fixing a gate, then some family showed up and then the football kicked off.
After the football finished I dived into a couple of sprints with a fellow writer on my local NaNo Facebook group. Those sprints took me up to almost 2000 words for the day in about two hours. At that point it felt like I was loosing my rhythm and what I was writing was feeling rather strained. I have all but beaten this damned head cold but it’s still there a little and I could feel a headache growing so I called it a night for the writing.

I didn’t get as much done as I had wanted. At the start of the day I’d wanted to get some writing done but I also wanted to get some brainstorming done and write up some notes I have both on my phone and a notebook. That didn’t get done. I also wanted to write a couple of blog posts, which I was going to do as I was watching series five of Futurama, again this did not happen. I used to be able to multi-task a lot better than I am at the moment, I can only guess that its fatigue that is hindering me. I’ve been feeling extremely tired of late and I didn’t sleep to well Saturday night either. So last night I spent most of the evening watching Futurama and when that finished I made sure I took just a little time to read before I went to bed. I did sleep a little better last night, but it took a bit of doing. I have a love/hate relationship with sleep and at the moment its definitely in the hate camp.

What’s going on this week? Well, I’m aiming to get a little consistency with writing. Since Christmas I haven’t written more than two days on the spin and that isn’t anywhere near good enough. I’m about on target with my WIP (1000 words a day) but I’m off target with that minimum for this year. I’m ahead simply because I managed to get ahead in December.

That’s my plan for the week, let’s see how it goes.

Have a great day and week everyone 🙂
