These days I work completely from home. I’m either:
- Remotely working back to Sydney. On a good week this is about 15 hours spread across 3 days. On a normal week it’s about 17 hours spread across 4. Given, though, that I’m not (yet) earning enough from my writing to pay our bills, I need to be flexible with this work.
- Working on the rewrite for I Want You Back…which may or may not end up with a title change…
- Working on turning some astro blog content into a series of ebooks
- Generating content for the blogs and scheduling posts and tweets
The thing is I’m not naturally a disciplined person – in fact, I’m far from it – working without the boundaries of having to get up, get dressed and go to an office is a personal recipe for disaster. In order to get anything done I’ve had to put in my own routines. Ten of them. I wrote about it here, on the author site.
What about you? How disciplined (or otherwise) are you? Any other tips for getting stuff done?
