After doing some thinking, then talking with Siarl (my partner), I’ve decided to simplfy my planned daily activities.
No longer am I going to keep up with some kind of “daily” log, a proscribed number of minutes I need to write, draw, read, etc.
I’m just going to focus on maintaining myself, Siarl, our house, the goats and other animals, the daily life stuff, and write every day for as long as I can.
When I start making money with books, or some other part of my life changes, or if I have another change of heart or epiphany, then I’ll revisit my daily routines.
I won’t stop myself from reading, but I want to focus on writing for now because I believe it will increase my chances of success.
Also, there doesn’t seem to be any data to support the recived wisdom that a nice looking book cover is important. So I’m not really going to worry about that either for now.
This blog will have new chapters and I’ll announce when my novel is published, but that’s all for now. I’m just going to focus on writing.
