Wow, the magic of the blogging universe is at work again. I discovered a blog post about Balance over at Murderati.
I’ve been feeling a bit overwhelmed. I figured out that I work non-stop 14 hour days, every day, 7 days a week. Half of that time, I’m multi-tasking.
I need to change, LOL.
So what do you know, I head over to Murderati, and there’s a long comment trail of suggestions—I just love the way the universe works!
So here’s the thing: I’m thinking of cutting back and writing only four days a week. Can you see me cringing when I say that?
You see, Sunday, I already day job from 8 am – 9:30 pm, with only an hour break. Monday, I figure I need to take care of my pseudonym’s career, take care of various paperwork and business ickiness from my day job, and, um, work the day job! Tuesday – Thursday, I can write in the morning, day job in the evening. Friday, I can write all day. Saturday, I usually have to day job for half day. I usually write on Saturday afternoon-night.
But .. I’m wondering if I take half-day/day off on Saturday to re-energize, and focus my random to-dos on Mondays … will my writing time be more productive Tuesday – Friday?
Or will only writing 4 days a week be too little practice? And sadly, if I wrote like a crazy woman all the time, I’d probably be able to scale the day job WAY back.
I just don’t know. I just don’t think I can do the 14 hour/7 days a week thing to get there as soon as I’d like.
How do you balance things?
