Virtuous and organized. [Sep. 10th, 2011|12:29 pm]

I currently have a writing to-do list for which the numbers are 2, 5, 6, 7, spread out over the next not-quite-fortnight. On the good side, this means that 1, 3, and 4 got done. I am feeling a bit weird about renumbering. I'm not sure why. Still and all.

2. Finish "The Radioactive Etiquette Book."
5. The True Tale of Carter Hall edits to send to beta readers.
6. Pick new novel to write.
7. Finish "Knockoff."

This is a pretty good list, all things considered.

It would be even better if there were not quite so many non-writing items on a non-numbered list. But we get what we get, and anyway today's must-do list, just for the day, is:

1. Bike workout.
2. Cut hair.
3. Finish cooking dinner.
4. Synch Kindle with wifi for new books.

And I think I can do that. And if I get through the end of the day with no one having trimmed my hair and the Kindle unsynched, I think we're okay. Actually. (Edit: This is why I put ridiculously simple things on my list: so that I actually manage to take the ten seconds to do them.)

Re: I think I missed this ...

We have an exercise bike in front of the TV, and I use it every damn day so that I can get hungry enough to eat.

Oh, vertigo-related health problems, how I love thee.

I also do Pilates and yoga at home, and I'm looking forward to Grandma living somewhere with a pool.

To-Do List

My kind of to-do list, the second one. I don't own a bike or a kindle, and my haircut comes next week. I guess working on dinner is now in order. Then more goofing off.

I am developing the habit also of to-do lists with things that can be easily crossed off, as a motivational tool. (Cognitive hacks - they work!)
