Here’s a good NaPoWriMo tip – if you have both poeming and weed-pulling on your to-do list for the day – do the poeming first! Don’t be like me; Sunday I did the weed-pulling first. And could barely use my hands the rest of the day. After 10 years of PAD challenges, I should have known better. My one excuse? It’s still early.
Day three and I’m still re-forming the habits. Getting up a little earlier to check my PAD challenges. Sharing them on the different platforms. Looking at the day’s schedule and finding those times available for focused writing. It’s Monday – which for most people means jump-starting their week. And a great day to jumpstart your writing month! Cultivate your habits early & they help you slide into the finish.

that sharp edge
