Good Morning, 16th Of February 2021

Good morning, folks!

I’ve been awake about an hour and I’m just about to get going on my mornings writing before I go to work. I’m pulling myself kicking and screaming to the laptop today though. I slept, but I don’t feel like I had a settled night. I know I just need to wake up fully, and getting some work done will help.

Something I realised about myself a long time ago was that if I get a good start to the day then the day is almost always better. It gives me a positive mindset and a sense of accomplishment. So that no matter what else happens that day I’ve already been productive and that puts me in a fantastic mood for the rest of the day.

It was a struggle to get out of bed when I did today. I had an internal battle with going back to bed for a couple of hours. I don’t have to be at work until this afternoon, so I could have had a few more hours but that felt like a surrender. I preach about being productive and I do that a lot to try and trick myself into doing it. Sometimes it’s easier to just roll over, but then nothing would have got done. I’ve got a few hours where I can just sit and work. I can sleep after work.

8th July 2018

Yesterday was what I call a productive day. I was up at about 6am and at my desk by 6:30am. There I sat till maybe 3pm sort of time. I had the odd break here and there, and spent the normal time faffing about on social media. All in all though I wrote 2961 words for the day. That’s 534 on WC2, 742 on AG3 (the final draft of a fanfic piece), 778 on PE3, and 917 on a guest post for a friends blog.

Needless to say I’m really chuffed with this. I’d set myself a target of 2000 words for the day, so smashing that put a decent smile on my face.

I am getting stuck with PE3. I’ve got scenes I know will be in the story that I’m going to jump ahead and write, but I’ve kinda lost where I’m going with it. So I’m going to tap up a friend and see if she do some brainstorming with me, because right now, I really don’t know where I’m going and it’s time to ask for some help.

After I finished writing I watched Knocked Up and This Is 40 back to back. I’d not seen Knocked Up since it came out so it was nice to see it again. This Is 40 is one I’ve seen a couple of times and one I do like a lot. While I was doing this I cleared out all the clothes I own that either don’t fit me, I haven’t worn in over a year, or have had it. I probably cleared out half my wardrobe doing this yesterday, and it was rather therapeutic. I’ve been in the process of changing what I wear for a while and have a decent collection of t-shirts and some gorgeous hoodies. The next area to cover is trousers. I love jeans, so that’s not gonna change too much but I now need to get some more pairs. I want to have a look around at different styles of trousers as well and see what takes my fancy, when the cash flow permits.

So, an exceptionally productive day yesterday. If I could get two of those a month I’d be one happy camper!
