I thought about taking a few days off from blogging this week. Usually I try to blog MWF and sometimes on Sunday. But with A to Z Challenge starting this coming Sunday, I considered taking a mini-vacation from blogging and skipping today and Friday. But part of being a writer is having the discipline to not slack off even if no one is watching.
A few things are working against my regular schedule this week. My daughter has three high school softball games this week on, you guessed it, Monday, Wednesday and Friday. My husband is going out of town Thursday through Sunday and the grass really must be mowed this weekend. Lots of other little duties are requiring my time and attention over the next few days the largest of which is getting my posts ready for A to Z.
But I have discipline and I believe good things will come to those who work hard. One of many good things for me this week was this new review for The Keepers of Sulbreth from Dennis Royer on Amazon. Thanks, Dennis.
On a more personal level, my daughter received a terrific scholarship offer from Boston University, settling her agonizing decision of where to go to college. She worked so hard for this, we were all a bit giddy to see her get what she's earned come to fruition. The only down side is that she'll be seven hours away from home.
So, I'm going to discipline myself, stick to my blogging schedule, get all my A to Z posts ready and still find some time to work on my writing.
Have some good things come your way lately? Are you disciplined with your writing time?
