It’s time for me to get back on track. I have spent the last few weeks mourning the loss of my brother. I let myself just fall apart. I ate too much. There I said it. I also spent time watching tv.
I also spent time praying, reading scriptures out loud, and listening to daily prayer calls with intercessors from around the country. On Saturday I had a breakthrough, and heard the Lord say, “Your brother is in heaven. He is happier than he’s ever been. He doesn’t want you to be sad anymore.” Well, the sense of peace I felt after that was awesome.
Now I need to get back to writing. Not just the blog, of which I have obviously been neglectful, but my other planned (and started) writings: Ambassador (which got stuck), Arm Wrestling with Pharaoh (second edition, with updates) and Tesla’s Pigeon, formerly known as Scraps of Paper (which is also stuck).
My question is: How do I get myself on a schedule? Sure, I can write one, but how do I stick to it? Life seems to pop up (today Mr. Porter is off buying a new phone because his died and we spent hours online trying to resolve problems…) and just general distractions.
I am also scheduled to go back to work next week! I was not sure I was going back, but yep, that’s happening.
So… if you have any secrets you would be willing to share, please drop them below. Thanks!

Something that might help is to start on November first and tell yourself you have to write 50,000 words by the end of the month. That will motivate you when you check on the number of words you have written each day. Then in December, use that time to either continue writing or to edit.

That is a really good idea! The National Novel writing group does that every year. I should get back on their email list again.
Thank you for the idea!!!!
