And so it begins

With the beginning of novel_in_90 and getting back into making writing a part of my daily life, I've decided to instate, or reinstate, more of a schedule in my life. I am not as productive nor a good steward of my (free) time when I don't have a "job" with a boss and a paycheck. The days are long and I can do what I will; so most of the time, I end up whiling away hours the day on the Internet. I'm too realistic to think I can say, "I will write from 9:00-10:00 everyday" and actually be permitted to stick to it.  But I can make a list of things that need doing and proceed to get them done. 

I have many projects that are in the works; I need to finish them because I have other projects that I will soon need to get underway for the holidays. Writing time must be scheduled and stuck with but so must time for creating, for exercise, etc. I wear a lot of hats.

Since the day we bought my bike and Soëlie's bike seat, I have been very good about getting out, exercising and getting fresh air. That is a habit that is pretty well set, but with the arrival of poor weather (it is rainy and gray out, a true "fall" day; scratch that.  It's gorgeous out; I had to change into short sleeves), I know it won't be so easy to keep up. I have to make the effort, though, for both Soëlie's sake and mine.

I'll probably post my to-do lists here each day, behind a cut. I know my mundane doings are not of interest to the population living outside my brain, but I like keeping track of such things and I'd rather waste LJ pixels than paper.

So, today:

~ Make deodorant 
~ Write 750 words (or more) (got 878)
~ plot at least 3 more chapters
~ Art journal
~ exercise
~ Put the zipper in S's sleep sack
~ Clean the floors after supper (with a baby, this has to be done at least twice a day; already did it once)

I want to keep adding stuff, but that is enough for today. I have to have unplanned free moments, too.

For someone who doesn't like wearing stuff on her head, Soëlie sure is wearing a lot of stuff on her head. :p

I know. I've been working on it with her. I think we'll be good come winter. :D

I just adore your photos and posts. How do we get to know each other if we don't talk about mundanities as well as the big picture things. I'll be reading and cheering you on from halfway around the world.

What **lovely** photos. You have a way with a lens! (And you have a beautiful subject, whom you dress beautifully, and you live in a lovely place--but all this you show to its best effect!)

In the bookend photos, she is so thoughtful--positively contemplative. And I love the autumnal colors in the middle bottom one.

(also, I'm going to try for 500 words a day in November, starting today. We'll see...)
