First off a big Whoo Hoo goes out to Jenn Johanson who announced this week that she has an agent. Jenn was one of the first blogs I followed, and I'm so excited for her.
Second, there seems to be a consensus that planning and making dinner is a royal pain for a lot of us. My sister keeps giving me suggestions like: put a roast in a crock pot before you leave for work, fry up a bunch of chicken and freeze it, take the meat out in the morning. My sister in law goes so far as to plan her meals for a month. A month. (I thought that begged repeating).
I try to plan for a week, but lots of times I get to Wednesday and I don't feel like making pasta, but this week I'm going to stick to my plan. In fact, tonight when my son asked what was for dinner, I said, "Whatever you want to make", which was what I had planned for Tuesday since I work until 6pm. So this week I'm going to try and stick with my plan.
The same can go for writing. If we don't plan, sitting down to write can seem tedious and hard, but if we make a schedule maybe writing will be easier. I'm going to try it this week and see how it goes.
How about you do you plan your meals or your writing?
