Editorial: Writing Time Mangement Made Easy
Hi fellow writer – welcome to this week's issue in which we discuss managing your writing time, and increasing your productivity.If time management is a hassle for you, here's my simple process. It works for me, and itworks for my writing students. If you're not as productive as you feel you could be, tryit.
My super-simple process
 Here's my time management process in a nutshell:
Set writing goals with deadlines
Create daily tasks which will lead to the accomplishment of those goals by thedue dateEarth-shattering, right? :-)You've heard all this time management stuff before, and you've either set goals already,or have done so in the past… and the process didn't work for you. It's important however that you realize that it CAN work, once you determine that you want it to work, and de-velop a strategy to ensure that it does work for you.

To coin a cliché,
WRITERS WRITE. Every day.
Therefore, that's one of the first of my daily tasks… no matter what else happens on that day, I know that I must get mydaily word count done.
I'vebeenwritingtoadailywordcountgoalforsolongthatit'sahabit,soIdon'tevenneedtothinkaboutit;Ijustdoit.Andthat'sthekey…changingyourbehavior,sothatyoudevelopef?icienthabits.
I've just looked at Things, my time management tool on my Mac (I commend it to you --http://culturedcode.com/things/) and I have six tasks which are scheduled for every sin-gle day – yes, weekends too. No matter what, I get those six tasks done. That's become ahabit: to schedule the tasks that I MUST get done, every day. If they're on my schedule,they get done… because it's a habit for me to do it.I'm not saying it's easy to do what's on your schedule. Some days it isn't. Some daysthings happen. :-) If you can't do something because your computer dies, or one of thekids is sick, or your spouse announces he/ she wants a divorce… deal with it.Adjust your schedule. Sooner or later things will get back to what passes for normal, andyou can keep right on writing away.
Key strategy: stick with the present moment 
Here's a key strategy: deal with what happens when it's happening. In other words, if you're writing, write. If you're dealing with a flooded bathroom and need to call the plumber, call. If you're hungry, eat, and enjoy your food… focus on the NOW.Staying in the moment is not easy. I've mentioned meditation before, and it's veryworthwhile for writers, because writing is a performance art. Writing takes every single brain cell you have, because you need to focus. If you're not concentrating, you can'twrite. Meditation builds your concentration.Therefore, if you get the opportunity, learn to meditate. Even five minutes of meditationa day can make all the difference – it trains your mind and body to focus completely onwhatever is happening. (There are lots of other benefits too.)
