Mostly, though, the problem is that I have a lot of writing to do, on a deadline, and I've been sort of figuring out how the routine is going to work. When I'm up in the Berkshires, with no New York City around and very little night life, it'll be a no-brainer: wake up, write, sleep, repeat for two months. But until the end of April, I'm distracted by other things and I'm trying different recipes: work out, shower, then write, or write first thing and try to remember to shower? Eat before exercising, and if so how much and how long before the exercise? Is it safe to watch TV? Check my email? And so on. As long-term readers know, when I have an assignment or I'm trying to work on a book, I have a hard time justifying doing anything fun when I could be writing for money. Blogging is one more thing I'm trying to figure out how to make time for.
For the moment, however, I think I've figured everything out, and I'll be okay, so you can expect to hear stuff from me on a more regular basis. Sorry for the hiatus. It was wholly involuntary.
