To borrow and re-word a line from the Boomtown Rats…I’ll tell you why I do like Mondays.
First and foremost I have to say that I do love my day job as a Librarian and that I work Tuesday – Friday.
So my Monday’s are for me and my writing.
It’s the day that I get to write and nothing else. I don’t have to go anywhere or do anything.
One. My housework is done from the weekend so the house is still (relatively) tidy.
Two. I don’t have to travel.
Three. I get to network with you fine people.
Four. I get to write.
Five. I get to research.
Six. I get to think.
Seven. I get to plan.
All in all I love Monday’s because it’s the day that I work on my writing. Which I love.
I’m lucky enough to have a day where I can dedicate my entire day to writing. And what’s more because my other half is out at work (sorry sweetie) I work all day, but also with a deadline. I guess I could go on for hours, and hours, and hours…you get the point. But when my partner/boyfriend gets back home, the writing goes away. You can do too much. And it keeps me focused so I don’t procrastinate.
With just having one full day in the (working) week to focus solely upon writing, I really have to focus my mind and my time so I can come away at the end of the day knowing it was productive. And it usually is. And then whatever I don’t get finished on a Monday can be finished throughout the rest of the coming week before and after my day job. So my entire week is productive. And I do something everyday.
So I love Mondays.
(Mostly) Uninterrupted writing.
