My goal is to write every day and so far this year I’ve done a good job of sticking to that goal. I thought I’d share my weekly writing routine for posterity. This is what works for me right now. It will be fun to look back and compare it to what works for me months or years from now.
Now, on to the routine!
Monday: Write The Dreams. Post my writing progress to my blog.
Tuesday: Edit the next chapter of The Dreams. Write if I finish editing.
Wednesday: Continue editing the next chapter. Write if I finish editing.
Thursday: Continue editing the next chapter. Write after I finish editing.
Friday: Write The Dreams.
Saturday: Write The Dreams. Post the new chapter to my blog.
Sunday: Write The Dreams.
This schedule works for now, but I plan on having the first draft of The Dreams finished by the end of April so things will start to get switched up then. By May the plan is to start the first draft of a new novel while continuing to revising The Dreams chapter by chapter to post here. Things won’t really start to get chaotic until The Dreams is fully posted, I start sharing my next novel and I tackle draft 3 of The Dreams.
I don’t know how I’m going to do it, but there’s plenty of time for me to figure it out.
Do you have a weekly writing schedule? Do you find assigning certain tasks to certain days to help or hurt your writing process? I’d love to hear about your routine as well as your thoughts on mine.
