Time Management

By the number of late and missed blog posts over the last two months, you might think I already have a problem with this. I don't really. I had plenty of time in October and November. December was a bit hectic, but I still had time. The blog just slipped my mind with all the other stuff going on.

But the holidays have come and gone (mostly. We'll celebrate Christmas with Sonshine tomorrow and then put him on a plane early Sunday morning.). The new year has started (obviously) and it's when the bulk of my duties to my writing group happen.

I've started a list of all the things I have to accomplish or work on, on a daily or weekly basis. I'll have carve out time for DH and for myself, as well as make time for my various tasks. It's going to be a long couple of months and I must have a grasp on everything so I can stay sane and on top of all my duties.

I'm recalling a similar blog lament last year. :) I thought once I got through March, everything would slow down. They slowed down some, but not as much as I was expecting or hoping. This year I have no such fantasies. Yes, things will taper off, but the next batch of things to accomplish (you know, publishing four books in June and everything that has to get done to make that happen...) will be waiting, so maybe I can look forward to a semi-relaxing summer...

How do you manage your time and tasks?

Happy New Year! I too struggle with time management--I get the big things done, but I have a hard time with the smaller issues (like blogging and social media participation). I'm a fan of making lists and I use my planner to stay on task with deadlines.

Enjoy Christmas with Sonshine!
