Plan for the Weekend

Will definitely be different than for the week. Technically, I wanted to have a productive week but I did have low expectations. This was my son’s first week of summer with me and that meant summer camp. The camp was great and he had a very good time, BUT it was a whole new routine for me in the morning and writing got bumped pretty much every day.

So tomorrow I take him to camp for the last time this week, then I’ve got a weekend to focus on the writing and that’s what I intend to do (minus Father’s Day on Sunday). Here’s what I’m think for a sketch of my schedule.


  • After work, pay bills to get that off my mind
  • Then, head to Caffe Driade for my usual every other week caffeine induced writing marathon


  • Up early and write
  • Write some more
  • Avoid distractions
  • Write some more
  • Have lunch
  • Continue avoiding distratctions
  • Write some more
  • Get in a workout in order to feel well-rounded (and that whole health thing)
  • Write some more
  • Grill something and drink a beer while watching Game of Thrones


  • Sleep in a little
  • Have fun with my son and my dad

All of that said, I’ve got about 40 more changes to make to the current draft before I do my complete read through. I want to get those changes done by the end of the month and since this is my last kid-free weekend this month, I intend to make most of them this weekend.

Hmm (strange aside – the spell check in this app sees Hmmm as misspelled but gives Hmm a pass!), methinks that I need a goal. Let’s go with, 25 changes this weekend leaving 1 for each remaining day of the month AND my stretch goal will be to make 30 this weekend to get me down to 10 remaining.
