Discipline of Writing a Schedule about Not Writing
Grant, schedules can definitely
help, but it depends on what the schedule is.
For example, the following schedule might not
work as well as some others:
MY WRITING SCHEDULE
Get up early and write until breakfast, then think about
writing for the rest of the day, then write for ten
minutes before bed.
Get up early and write for a half hour, then rest before
breakfast, then think about not getting writer's block
for the rest of the day, then write for twelve minutes
about not getting writer's block before bed.
WEDNESDAY Get up
half an hour than my usual time and write for three
quarters of an hour and use the extra fifteen minutes to
write about how it felt to write more that morning, then
rest from writing for the rest of the day, then, before
going to bed, write for one special writing minute, then
go to bed.
Learn and initiate the discipline of not writing at all all
day, then don't write again before bed.
Go out and have a good time, but always keep in mind that
I'm not writing and plan on doing that tomorrow, then go to
bed and dream about writing.
See and socialize with friends all and night, talking about
writing and how much I like being a writer and am looking
forward to being a successful one who writes all the time,
then come home and go to bed.
This is the seventh day and, since God rested on this day,
he wants me to rest and not write, so I don't all day, then
pray about being a writer who writes, then go to bed, peaceful with the thought that I obeyed God and
didn't write one word.
