What do you want out of your day?
I've started asking myself that question a lot more. What do I want to have crossed off my list at the end of the day? Who do I want to have spent time with? What do I want to make progress on?
Writing is one of those things that can easily slip away if I don't protect it. Some days - an unexpected phone call, a health emergency, a friend in need - the writing has to take a back seat. But other days I guard it by asking myself, "What do I want to have done with my writing time today?"
With the time I have today, I want to write 1,000 words and respond to two of the writing questions waiting in my inbox. What about you?
