ISWG: Re-Organizing

Yup. Like this post is titled, I'm reorganizing a bit. Family stuff keeps getting in my way. If you haven't noticed, I've not been posting too terribly much as of late.

Yes. I'm still going to write and keep blogging. But sometimes I won't be around. Family and novel writing come first. My blog and blog-visiting is for fun. Occassionally, I do a Vlog on YouTube. I really wished I had more hours in a day. I'm pretty sure a lot of you feel the same.

Also, I'm a slow writer as well as a reader. Sometimes I'm working on more than one project. Distracting, right? I drive myself crazy at times with all that I do. How about you?

So I have a new schedule to adhere to. (I hope I can do it, too.)

5:45 AM rise and shine
6-7 AM Devotion
7:30 AM Breakfast
8 AM Workout
8:30 AM Shower
9-11:30 AM Write my little heart out
11:30-12:00 PM Check emails, read some
12:30 PM Lunch and watch Vlogs
1 PM Get ready for work
2 PM Leave the house for work
3-9 PM At the Salon

On my days off, clean upstairs or downstairs. Most Saturday and Sunday evenings will be used for writing blogs and creating Vlogs. It all depends on what is happening.

So how are all of you juggling the time to write? Blog? Clean?

This post was created on behalf of Alex J. Cavanaugh ' s Insecure Writer's Group. It's an on-line support group for writers. We whine. We cry. We give each other encouragement.

  1. I can't imagine being awake that early. Just take your time.

    1. I am. I work better not being overwhelmed.

  2. I'm up even before then...
    Glad you have a plan. I won't scare you with how many hours I spend blogging.

    1. Don't tell me, Alex. I might have an anxiety attack over it.

  3. Good luck with the schedule, Shelly. I have a schedule--sort of. Not as rigid as yours, but it does help. And I cut back on my time online. I used to be online all the time. Now, it's quite limited.

    1. Being on-line too much keeps us from finishing what we need to. I'M glad I ditched FaceBook.

  4. For me, cleaning takes a backseat - and I mean waaaaay in back. :) Not necessarily a good thing, but we all make choices about what we can do without or let slide.

    Good luck with your re-organizing!

  5. Hi, Shelly,

    Cleaned almost all day today. I had never cleaned the blinds in my loft, even after the rehab. It was time! But I did spend most of this evening blogging.

    I did have some nut job leaving propaganda on EVERY one of my posts. Took me over and hour to delete them all out. Over a 100 of them. Don't these people have anything better to do with their time?

    1. I get weirdos, too. And I think it's their job to harass us.

  6. Like you, I'm trying to be smart about scheduling. I try to write at least one week's blog posts/wattpad posts etc over a weekend. Then I try and make at least two hours every day available for writing. And the social media goes into all of my short quiet moments.

    1. It's not as easy as I would limke it to be.

  7. I would like to be on a schedule but just getting up to take care of thehamish is about all I can manage now.
    Just looking at what you do everyday makes me exhausted

    cheers, parsnip


I'm dying to know what you think.
