I have quite a lot I am trying to accomplish at the same time.  I know that I have a tendency to take on several projects at once.  It’s just part of my nature.  I like having multiple things that I’m working on.  The problem with this though is that there are only 24 hours in the day.  I have to spend at least 8 of them working, 7-8 sleeping, leaving only 8-9 to make and eat 2 meals, hit the gym, commute to work, try to relax, and pursue a myriad of hobbies that I love.  So if I’m going to try to get anything at all done I have to force some organization on myself. 

So I’m going to start blocking out time for big projects.  For instance I’m currently working on two articles for Your Wardrobe Unlock’d: the Costume Maker’s Companion.  One is due in April and one is due in May.  We’re traveling several weekends during those months so I want to have these articles finished at least 2 weeks before their deadlines to make sure I have enough time for revisions and edits.  This means I need to be spending more time on them now.  So I’ve decided to block out a big chunk of my Saturday for writing.  If I find I’m too easily distracted at the house I’m going to take my bum down the road to Royal Bean and work there.  This way I can get some good, solid work done on these articles and free up my Saturday evening for sewing and Sunday for fighter practice.  I think it will work well.  Now I just need to stick to it.
