Day 21, Monday, March 21st


Are you happy with the level of writing you are currently doing?

Do you feel like you're able to write and keep your balance with all the other facets of your life?

I recently heard a speaker explain keeping your balance does not mean spending equal amounts of time on everything thing you do. She said, you can tell you're in balance when you think of the areas of your life and feel good about them.

I loved that!

What's the very best way we come to "feel good" about what we're doing? When we know we're following the Spirit. Somehow He leads us to do just the right thing, at just the right time. It's easy to tell when you need to do something else. You just don't feel as peaceful, like your forcing things.

Not feeling satisfied with the level of writing you're doing? Seek the promptings of the Spirit for more inspiration about your schedule, or goals, finding energy, whatever your challenge is. If nothing changes, nothing changes. JMClark

Creativity Kick-Starter
Star gaze
Let your mind wander.

You know why? It’s good for your creativity. It’s true. There is a great deal of research linking daydreaming and creativity. I’m not going to quote the studies here because it would take too long and they were kinda boring. But take my word for it there really is a connection between the two.

Just remember to keep a notebook or your phone near by for when inspiration hits!

Productivity Pointers

Chances are you already do this but I thought it was worth putting out there: Batch similar tasks. It doesn’t make sense to run to the bank, come home write for fifteen minutes than dash out to the grocery store. So you schedule as many of your out of the house chores as you can for the same day. Right?

The same principle is true in writing. Doing research in one big session is more productive than stopping every ten minutes to look something up. Querying numerous agents at once works like this, as well. So does editing or writing. Let’s face it, lumping similar tasks together is just efficient.
