Snot pages are a start to your day, not a finish. To become the writer I want to be, I will set aside the first 4 hours of each day from when I wake up to hammer out my ideas. I want to have that sense of great accomplishment and know that I have more work and writing done than most people well before lunchtime. Out of the 4 hours, I am shooting for 3 hours of actual writing. The rest of the time will include a shower, shave, and breaks from being on my feet. I don’t need to eat until the basic work is done. Only coffee and tea to keep me going. What the morning hours are for is writing. Once I cut up this document into posts, articles, and comments, I will then add other research, images, and video. I cannot be distracted during the morning hours. No email. No surfing.
