Along with another writer friend of mine, Amy Miles, we have paired up to create our weekly “Writer’s Homework.” Since we are both self-published authors and both trying to figure this thing out as we go, we thought our two heads were better than one. The first thing we decided we needed was a schedule. Now I’m a VERY anal and organized person. I LOVE to plan. It’s the follow through I tend to suck at. So this could be interesting. Individually, we gave ourselves a writing chore to do each week. Mine is as follows:
Monday: Update Blog (One down!) and write for 2 hours.
Tuesday: Write 2 hours/Read 1 hour (cause let’s face it, we learn the most when we read)
Wednesday: Marketing/Free write (nothing for sequel–just for fun!)
Thursday: Write 2 hours/Read 1 hour
Friday: Write 2 hours/Read 1 hour
Saturday: We’ll review a piece of writing for the other.
It may not seem like a very ambitious list, but also remember, I work two part-time jobs, have two children and a home to keep clean.
The only question remains, is, will I have the will power to keep it up?
