This is a good example of why I don’t get more done

I had a clear idea of what I wanted to get done today. And actually achieved most of it, but I thought I’d be done well before this.
For various reasons relating to TYG’s schedule, we would up sleeping late. By the time we got up, got breakfast, went bicycling, came back, it was noon. And I was a little wiped—8.1 miles with a hill is more than I’ve done of late.
So there was nothing done in the morning, and everything I did in the afternoon took a little longer due to the wiped-ness. Which is why it’s 9 p.m. with me not having written the long thoughtful post I expected to get done. Oh, well…
It’s this kind of thing that makes me think the only way I’m going to get extra nonfiction projects done is by cutting back a little on my Demand Media ehow work. And if I do extra work in the evening, make it fiction because I’m always more motivated to tackle that. It’s just hard to opt for a relatively dry project, even if it’s a good one, when I can sit around with TYG instead.
This will not be an option until 2013 because I’m going to need to work like bally-o just to bring in the normal amount in December, due to family visits, parties, Christmas, etc.
Hopefully tomorrow’s post will be more insightful.
