Here is my loose outline: (starting tomorrow)
1. Start my day with Morning Pages
Have you heard of these? I first learned about them from an article on Medium describing a portion of a book from Julie Cameron. Here is a link to a really good video with Julie telling you about the advantages of Morning Pages:
2. Yoga and Meditation
I love yoga but honestly, I have not done it in quite a while. With all the open space I have regarding time, I have no excuse not to get back in the habit. This will help me in creating amazing content for both my work and the work I write for others. I get horrible writer’s block, so I am hoping this will help.
3. News and Medium
Writing means you need ideas. I find my best ideas while reading content from the other great writers here and by exploring the news. I briefly worked as a news reporter and fell in love with the news. Actually, I guess I always loved watching and reading the news. It was a pastime I did with my dad.
4. Work On Client Content
After I’ve had some coffee, I will get down to business. I’ll finish any client work now complete (I like to work at night sometimes. I am a night owl). I will also start pitching websites and publications for ideas for personal essays I’d like to write.
This is not a concrete plan but one I have to sporadically follow until I come up with something better. I do not plan on this being dead on every day. Things happen. I am a mom of three, so I know that no day will be like the next. At least I have something to work with.
When I am not writing for clients and publications, I will be working on some scripts and possibly a book, though the scripts are more prominent. Stay tuned. There is a lot of good things coming for my writing career in my future.
