Ok. I did it.
On November 1st, I managed to finish the entire rough draft for my transmedia marketing proposal for school, read almost 100 pages from my textbook, hit the gym [in the morning – bonus points], and chugged out the first 2,300 words for NaNoWriMo. Whew! I’m exhausted just recounting it.
Tonight, I plan to wrap up an article I’m writing for the Connect site [Full Sail University’s news feed], as well as write at LEAST 5,000 more words for NaNoWriMo. Why so many tonight?
This weekend, my husband and I are heading to Clearwater Beach to celebrate his birthday and I plan to FULLY disconnect from work, school, and my commitments – to just enjoy my time with him. Quite the challenge, but I’m going to do it. No laptop, no cell phone. Just him, sparkling white sand, frothy sea foam, and perhaps a sugary drink with an umbrella.
So, in order to accomplish this goal of complete and total disconnection from technology and social media, I need to push myself to the max and get three days worth of NaNoWriMo writing done this evening so I do not fall behind. I hate working at a deficit, knowing that I’m behind where I need to be, so I’d rather try to get as far ahead as possible tonight than attempt to play “catch up” when I get back late on Sunday evening.
With that in mind, I’m going to cut this post a bit short, as I have some NaNoWriMo’ing [did I just create a new verb?] to do this evening.
Wish me luck on my prioritization!

One thought on “Priorities”
Its great to see you trying so hard to keep your priorities in order. School, work, writing, hobbies are all important, but not more than marriage and family. My hats off to you for your dedication, hard work ethic, and commitment to your family life.
