Time, schedules and writing productivity

Are any of the following issues familiar?

• An inability or reluctance to make future plans about writing 

• An inability or reluctance to schedule your day

• An inability or reluctance to stick with a schedule you have made

• Losing track of time, getting distracted

• Chronic lateness

• Overbooking your time

• An inability to estimate how long a task will take

• Overwhelm and anxiety when thinking of the future • Working too long at a stretch

• An inability to write except just before or after deadlines

• Insufficient prioritizing of writing relative to other activities and commitments

• Over-focusing on the passage of time and worrying that time is too short

A more extensive discussion is in my book, The Blocked Writer’s Book of the Dead.
