My husband will tell you I'm anything but organized. I'd like to disagree with him; pre-Mommyhood (aka "the time before the brain got sucked out of my head and replaced with rainbows and fairy dust), I was the Queen of Organized.
Color coding. Charts. Calendars. Schedules. Menu plans. A place for everything and everything in its place. File folders. Budgets. Bills paid (on time!). Balanced checkbook and a maintainance schedule for the car.
Now I'm lucky to be able to find a pen that writes and something to write on. (Never mind a calendar.) My wallet holds a collection of receipts (but rarely any money) and I never know what's for dinner until I open the freezer and see what's available to cook. (And then, I do an inventory of the cupboards and pull something together. If we're lucky. Or, I order pizza.)
My blogging reflects this lack of organization; sporadic at best, never sticking to any one topic (except perhaps writing...I think). But this is about to change! (She insisted, hoping that she wasn't about to make a colossal fool of herself in front of the entire internet.) I've decided to create a schedule. Ready? Here it is:
I'm going to blog Mondays (manuscripts, manuscript fixes, and any other M-word I can come up with), Wednesdays (works in progress, words, whatever...) and Fridays (fiction, fiction authors and f-word stuff. I think this will be the day I will feature--aha!--interviews with authors, among other things.
If I commit to three days out of seven (there are seven, right? They all seem to blur into one long period of time where I occaisionally get to sleep), then you (my gallent and probably confused readers) will know when to show (if to show). At least, that's the plan.
It's been a long time since I've had a plan. Living with a three-year-old means short attention spans and a tendency toward spontaniety. So this too, could fall through. (I'll pencil it into my calendar, though.) Starting Wednesday...
