I’ve been playing a game with myself. Every week, I set very specific goals for the amount of time I need to write. They’re broken down by project, and by days of the week (Mon-Wed, Wed-Fri, Sat-Sun) (and no, writing on Wednesday doesn’t count twice).
This week, I need to write 2.5 hours total on 3 different projects from Mon-Wed. Right now it’s Tuesday night, and I’ve written for 2.3 hours, and I still have 1.17 hours left.
2.5 – 2.3 = 1.17 in writing math.
Why? Because extra time put in on a project doesn’t count. What a fun game!
