And August is Still on Course to Be a Perfect Blogging Month…

It’s going to be hot again, tomorrow. Triple digits. And after we’d all put away our hot-weather hats, as my farmer friend says. Gonna have to get the hats back out.

I’m just now remembering that I was supposed to have a blog post today. Does it show?

I’m beginning to think my revision bag is out to get me. It’s great for hauling a project around… and it’s organized… but if I don’t take the thing back out of the bag, and put it somewhere I can see it, it’s out of sight, out of mind. I don’t have the same problem with the things I put in my purse. Maybe that’s just because I use my purse every day. So, do I have novel revision under my belt for the last week or so?  Why no, I do not.

It’s a little counterintuitive. You’d think that having the bag so I can take it with me–and always be sure to have a pen handy–would help, but at the moment… I’m not sure it does.

So, I’m taking the manuscript out of the bag, and setting it up for my high-priority, early morning session. I should be able to get back into it pretty easily, once I start thinking of it.

I need a little more workspace. That’s really the truth. Or… I need to get in the habit of taking the manuscript out and working somewhere else. One or the other.

    Hope your early morning routine of working on your manuscript works. I’ve been finding that consistent working on mine for a little time every day helps me make more progress than I think.
