At the end of this post I share a free printable of ten activities to do to have a fun staycation as a writer. But first I share how I plan to have a relaxing and recharging writing-related week. I am looking forward to the upcoming week. I have decided to take the week off…
Sometimes the preparation for a first draft reside a little too much in the left part of the brain. All this work I find fun but it does not take of if I also do not engage the right side of the brain before diving into writing the first draft. This part is a little less obvious and doesn't figure as easily on a to-do list. Here I try to break it up anyway.
Sagan wrote for two-three hours each day. To come up with such a schedule it is perhaps necessary to try out different times of the day and then stick to the time that works best.
Sometimes we don't have that kind of freedom and need to accommodate our writing schedule to our life circumstances. This is one of the themes in the book Miss Iceland by Auður Ava Ólafsdóttir.
