I had been using this week off of my day job to see if I could author full time. The good news is that I think, yes, I could. However, that is because I learnt a few hard lessons this week.
1: I was actually pretty burnt out from my day job and full time working as an author was just not possible. So, I didn’t get as much done as I hoped, but I did get the rest I needed.
2: I seriously need a better schedule rather than just the deadlines of when submissions are due.
3: 10:20am is a strange and evil time. That is exactly when distraction and procrastination would kick in. Which would be fine if it lasted 20 mins and I just took a break. But no, it often went on till after lunch. This doesn’t happen in my day job and I still have no idea how to sort it out.
All in all it was a goods learning experience.
