Training Tip #9/8: Make Some Time!

Hmm, looks like days 9 and 8 got combined. Which reminds me of the next training tip: clear your February calendar. Or at least, schedule time to make a successful picture book marathon happen. Think about when you plan to write each day, and then make sure to keep that time open. Often, we're so busy each day we don't even allow time to think! Not conducive to creativity....


  1. I have set aside 9am to 12 noon to write, revise and read while offspring are at school. quit the day job for writing. Is that dedicated or crazy? A bit of both I am thinking. 1.30-3.30 for art and 7.30pm + for networking and studying. setting the alarm for 6am to have tie for exercise and blog before school run and 3.45 to 5.45 for students. Best laid plans of mice and men...lucky I am a woman.

  2. Hip, hip, hooray! My February calendar includes time for daily reading and writing. ~Suzy

  3. Cleared up my mornings to write as well. Afternoons are for illustrating.
