My little girl Mary started full-time school today. I spent January ignoring my work, the temptation to write, edit and basically get on with things. I made do with a notebook, scribbles, and a colourful (albeit ambitious) schedule taped over my second screen.
The 2012 Schedule could be seen in my peripheral vision as I set about brief sessions of administration work that could not and would not wait until school resumes. I often caught myself gazing wantingly at the work I had to come, the study, the writing, the competitions, the yoga, the Friday night Zumba class, an edited book and a new one to boot all finished and attended to by the year’s end!
Am I dreaming? Is this schedule the best piece of fiction I will write all year?
What goals have you set for yourself?
