Hittin’ the Brakes

How are you at time management? Maybe you can multi-task, but apparently, I can’t. Case in point: blogging twice a week is keeping me from writing my humor series. Also I’m organizing my interview transcripts, preparing to plunge into writing the biography I mentioned earlier. See?

Arranging stories from transcripts in chronological order.
Some assembly required.

Someone recently made me realize that every hour I invest in preparing blog posts is an hour that I’m NOT working on my major projects. I have hometown folks waiting for that East Texas series, people! And more folks waiting for the biography I’m just starting on.

So I’m hitting the brakes on this blog… reluctantly, because it’s so much fun to share my goofy-but-true stories. Gonna see how it goes–hopefully, I can still take time to write a post each month or so. Like if something extra ridiculous happens, or maybe I have a few photos to share. But I won’t stress over it.

I’m off now to set up some project deadlines for myself. I need goals and a hefty dose of focus. Goodbye, multitasking! I’m typing my way toward those two sweet words:

“The End”

Thanks for reading,

About Jan C. Johnson

Welcome! If you like food, reading, laughing over life's little disasters, and maybe thinking about the bigger things of life, you have come to the right place. Besides blogging, I write humorous fiction, though real life tends to leave fictional humor in the shade. But I'm not a total goofball. No, really. I'm also working on a biography project. I live in North Texas with my husband, Brent. We enjoy bicycling, Mexican food, and traveling to visit our kids and grandkids.

    I appreciate your blog entries, but I think it’s a good idea to concentrate on your major projects. I find a blog entry once a month is a pretty good clip. If I go once every two months, readers generally don’t notice the difference and that’s a pretty decent pace. Six months, though, is a different story, which means I have to get cranking on a new entry for my blog.
    I should see you tomorrow at the writers group.

    Oh my. I just found you and you’re my doppelgänger We are kindred spirits who can’t do it all. No problem with writers’ block but a problem wanting to write it all. Everything is fodder. My blog is even named similarly to yours. Lifestoriesandbeyond.com because I too believe we all have stories to share. I’m at the beach alone at the moment supposedly to work on the “book” I’m trying to write and organize into chapters. Mostly funny essays. I keep getting distracted by reading other people’s blogs and getting caught up in the blogging world. And so, like you, I’m closing my laptop, charging my phone in the other room and working on that book. For at least an hour or as long as I can put off writing the blog post that is whirling around in my little head. Good luck. Lisa
