white noise and other distractions
The extra time each day will come from identifying the white noise and other distractions. These include stopping looking for a couple of days' work outside the home. Our budget has been quite scary lately, but I keep reminding myself that we've had some pretty major, one-off expenses with moving in to our new house. These won't be continuing and we're hoping that things will settle down, money-wise. If things are still tight in 12 months time, I'll have to look for work. Otherwise, we can stay as we are, living on one income and my casual freelancing.
I think the main thing is to make the commitment to writing and follow through with my goals. I talked to Joe last night and he's very supportive. He's also sick of hearing that I want to write, so that could be his motivation too! I'll try to not do the same thing to all of you - less talk, more action!
And so the first month begins - I'll give you an update on April 5th to let you know if I've reached my target!
PS I just realised that if I take away the words I've already written, I may not even have to do the 250 words each day. I will have to do the maths and get back to you!
