As I've so recently noted, I'm back from vacation. The holiday is over; now it's time to get back to work. But I've got a plan.
Before we left, I bought myself a little kitchen timer at the Dollar Store. (I shall not wax poetic on the joys of the Dollar Store. Drives my kids nuts.) I got it to, basically, set myself a limit for doing non-book-writing-related tasks, like, oh, say, blogging.
I wouldn't use it for trying to force myself to stick to my book writing time. For one thing, it makes me feel like I'm on Sixty Minutes (tick, tick, tick). For another, once I get started, that's rarely an issue.
So, nope. It's strictly for non-writing related tasks, and although I got it primarily for computer-related time takers, I'm going to use it for cleaning my office, too. Forty minutes, tops. Then it's on to something work-related.
And there's the bell. I'm off!
