My Writing Corner...

I finally managed to sort out a writing corner for myself... It's not well decorated atm, but give me time! I've put up calendars for 2008 and 2009, that's a start.


So, anyway, it's funny, but I do feel a little more focused now, and have been able to get into the work mind set sitting here. Which is a good thing because I really wasn't "feeling it" over on the dining room table.

So, today's job is all about getting a timeline sorted. Having looked at dates etc. and taking into account the ideas my supervisor put forward, it looks like I'm going to have to spin out 4000 words a fortnight. That's a bit scary, but if I think about it, that's really just a short story every couple of weeks, and I can spin one out in a day quite easily once I'm on a roll, and this is just a draft level anyway, not polished - that comes later...

I need to have the entire 40 000 word draft completed before bubs arrives, and with the current timeline, I'll be finished with the draft on October 3rd. That gives me a couple of weeks until my edd (and just in case I fall behind, eeek!), and bubs will probably arrive some time after that. My supervisor (the main one) wants me to have a 4 week break before editing... I might take 6 though in case bubs doesn't arrive till the end of October.

Ok, enough procrastinating...

That looks like a really peaceful corner to work in! A clear space really does make a big difference to productivity I reckon.
