Routines are good, especially when it comes to writing. Establishing a schedule was difficult at first, but eventually I got into the routine of writing at lunch, five days a week. A good start, but that’s just what it was, a start.
To continue the positive pattern, I’ve decided to build on the routine. I’m setting the alarm and waking up early every morning. I’m starting at six o’clock, and I’ll start at five next week. That way, I’ll have roughly ninety minutes in the morning to write every day, and another fourty-five minutes at lunch. With that, I should be able to finish a short story in under two months, like it seems to be taking me at the current pace.
