Managing Time

A couple of weeks ago I blitz through season one of A Game Of Thrones in about three days. I’d get home from work and get stuck straight in. I am one of those people who will watch a couple of episodes of a series and if I like it I’ll wait for it to come out on DVD and then watch the series over a couple of days. I’d imagine studios hate me because I never stay the course for a series when it’s on tv (I’d just like to point out that I did not discover Firefly untill three or four years after it had been cancelled 😦 )

So this is my problem, I really want to get stuck into Series Two which Tracie brought me for our 1st year together anniversary, but I don’t want to lose the entire of the next week through watching this. I get home from work at about 6:20 each night. Now after shower, dinner etc. its anything between 7pm and 7:30pm so what I’m hoping to do is get some writing stuff done and any other bits and pieces (drying dishes etc.) by 9pm so I can watch two episodes a night and still get a good nights sleep.

Earlier this year I did a Battlestar Galactica marathon (Should really write a post about that) and I lost almost all my writing time because of this (I am easily distracted!) and I really don’t want to lose that amount of time again if I am honest.

That is my aim for the next two weeks or so. Tomorrow night I’m off to the cinema so tomorrow nothing will get done but from Wednesday I’ll be trying to stick to this until I’ve finished season 2, but then I start of the next season of Spartacus! 😀

A Quick Update

Most of the last week I have been fighting an irritating cold. Nothing serious but when I do get a cold it gives me a fuzzy head and doing anything creative is thrown out of the window. This annoys me because I had a little momentum going from last week and that’s just gone out of the window. I’m past the worst now so ill be back on creating soon. Probably after the easter break as I seem to have a lot on this weekend.
A lot of today has been spent trying to get a blog post written or a little bit of fiction done but that was not happening so most of it has been spent on Facebook, Twitter and over here at WordPress and watching a lot of TV!

So have you seen that Amazon have brought Goodreads, I’m not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing just yet. I’m willing to wait and see how it all plays out. Tobias Buckell wrote a very interesting post about it, here’s the link http://www.tobiasbuckell.com/2013/03/29/amazon-has-acquired-goodreads-huh/

I’m going to change how often I write my Movie Monday posts. They are not getting the response I was hoping for so I’m going to change it to a monthly post as opposed to a weekly one.

To end tonight’s post I would like to say a few words in the memory of British actor Richard Griffiths. He passed away last night and I, like many around the world, will miss seeing him on our screens. I remember him mainly from the TV series Pie In The Sky and the movie The History Boys. Mr. Griffiths was an outstanding actor who also came across as a intelligent and good person as well.

R.I.P. Richard Griffiths
