Karalee’s Post #125
It’s important. It allows me to get stuff done during the day. Important tasks, like going to work, writing, having a clean house and clothes, cooking and eating, yard work, sleeping, being social with friends, being a mother and wife in my family.
In its own way each item is important.
Regarding my”routine” writing time, does having a set time stifle my creativity? If I “have” to write between noon and three, can I simply sit down and get to it? Or does worrying that it takes time to get going, and that once I do, I have to stop at a certain time reduce my productivity to nil, like trying to squeeze juice from a dehydrated lemon?
According to Merriam-Webster’s dictionary, the definition of routine is:
: a regular way of doing things in a particular order
: a boring state or situation in which things are always done the same way
: a series of things (such as movements or jokes) that are repeated as part of a performance
: done very often
: done or happening as a normal part of a job, situation, or process
: easily done according to a set way or method
5/5/5 challenge this week:
Short story word count: Story 1 – 1000 words total so far. I’m behind and need to step it up. See my nemesis above!
Pies eaten: Hey, it was Thanksgiving last weekend and I was very thankful for the multiple pieces of pumpkin and apple pies.
Gratitude for: Having the family together this week. Two of my children now live on their own and it takes more organizing to make time together.
