My goal for the month is to finish my current round of revisions before I go on vacation in three weeks. The reasoning behind this is so I can set the manuscript aside for the two weeks we'll be gone and not worry about where I was and how I was going to fix that (insert major flaw here).
I don't know if this goal is possible but I'm going to try anyway, which means I need to focus and not get distracted. Yea, I know, next to impossible. In all honesty I believe I can do it. I finished NaNo by thanksgiving and I took every Sunday off. But I do need to focus, which is why I made the goal. I work better if I have a deadline.
It's all about organization. I don't really watch tv. My reading is already limited to while doing other things (eating, dressing, brushing teeth, doing hair, cooking etc) I hardly clean my house or play computer games. Those are some of the things I have given up to write. And it's worth it. My question to you is, when you have some serious writing to do, what do you give up to do it?
