This week MFRW authors are musing on time management skills in the topic Managing My Writing Time.
Writing Time vs. Time for Other Stuff Authors Must Do
Are we talking about time management to immerse ourselves in our fiction? IMHO, fiction-writing time is lots easier to manage when an author is unpublished. After the story is ready to go to market, we have to divert time to write blurbs, advertising copy, promotional blogs, and Facebook posts. Whew, I’m exhausted!
My Time Management
Or how I attempt to manage.
I talked in my post last week about using lists for time management to remind me to put words on the page. But the best method I’ve found to manage is to make a list of what I’ve accomplished by tracking my hours and production. If I neglect to track what I’ve done, I’m much less productive.
When to Write
When I’m creating a new draft, I like to work in the early morning. But really, any time when I can get away from hungry animals, talking family members, and the gagging mainstream news media works!
And because I’m on deadline for one book, and releasing another, The Viscount’s Seduction, on September 12th, that’s all I have time for this week!
This is a blog hop, so hop along with my fellow MFRW Authors to see their thought on time management!
