Pamela Tracy here, and I'm a writer.
I'm also a teacher, mother, wife, reader, go to churcher.
Sometimes those other things get in the way of being a writer.
So, I become a list maker. I have a book due on the 30th, and actually, it's coming along very nicely. It's because of my Writer's To-do List.
Want to see my Saturday and Sunday to-do list?
Here it is (btw, the numbers are word count. I'm writing in 500 word spurts)
Reorganize game shelf in play room (I cleaned this room while my son was in camp last week)
Do laundry (load out, load in, fold put away)
Take back overdue library books, mail contest win, pick up medicine at pharmacy, eat lunch
Go to signing at Poison Pen bookstore (Opps, missed this one)
Mop kitchen floor (who dropped the box of Otterpops so that all the bottom ones broke open and now there's sticky stuff on the floor. Huh? It was me)
Visit with neighbor
Convince son that the showers he took last week at camp don't mean he doesn't have to shower this week.
Watch a Harry Potter movie for the sixth time (remind son to close eyes during all snake parts)
Put son to bed, lay with him and talk, go to bed.
Clean out pot and pan cabinet (It's getting ridiculous. Who bought all these pots and pans anyway? And why do I have lids that don't belong to pots? A red lid! Really? No red pots. Arg)
Write LI blog
Hey, I'm doing good.
Do you have a to-do list? Do you write it or just keep it in your head?
