There I was, gearing up for battle. I had eaten, done some editing, cleared my calendar, I was ready, by God, to do some writing.
No, really, this manuscript, I need to dive in and WORK on it. I’ve done all this new writing and a lot of it sucks, but it is the beginning of new ideas!
Let me see how my friends are doing on facebook.
Yep. This is how I squandered part of my afternoon. I could not keep my damn attention on the manuscript.
And so instead of going into battle, I made a battle plan. I promised myself that I did not have to write or edit a goddamned word during this time. But I would scan the manuscript and make a bunch of notes for things to work on tomorrow.
What is your battle plan?
