I have so much on my plate today - so many fun things I want to tackle, and tasks I NEED to do, and projects to move forward - that I find myself going BLAAAAAGH and doing none of them. It's an easy place to go - just... read my friendslist, poke at this that or the other thing a bit, wash the dishes, clean the catbox, answer a few emails... and stare at my list with fear.
But I can't afford fear. So instead, I make a list, break it down into its necessary parts, and set my timer. Here goes my day:
Sea monster article and monster map - 1 hour (Sea Monster Month is MAY! Holy Crap!) Draft of first segment is off, sundered times map is tentatively finished. Site setup for freelance project - 1 hour (registration page working, look drafted, template and database connection set up.) Anthology pricing and pre-order work - 1 hour discussion posted to forums lunch - 1/2 hour Commission-Control programming - 1 hour Artists can now get to the projects they are assigned to, and see which images are theirs. Client project management is a teeny bit better. Writing - 1/2 hour (anything I feel like at the time) A few hundred words and some outlining. EMG-Zine - set up news, get new issue ready for release. - 1 hour (I use too many !!s, but oh well...) Freelance project programming - 1 hour Remainder of day: pick up whatever bits I've missed. - More sea monster stuff, because May is in TWO DAYS. Yeesh.
