I like to listen to podcasts when driving so these will probably be ideal. I have shared it so that I can find it to go back to. Hopefully it’s of use to others too.

Today I read 4 short stories that I haven’t worked on since the end of 2014/January 2015. I did it peering through my fingers, as one might do when watching a horror movie, expecting absolute carnage.
I was pleasantly surprised.
It wasn’t so bad!
I am now feeling re-energised and excited to resume work on my short story collection along with the novel I am slowly writing.
I’m glad those stories didn’t end up in computer’s recycling bin.

Ten is the magic number.
Ten minutes of writing upon waking.
Ten minutes of exercise to start the day.
Ten minutes of meditation.
Ten minutes of any large or daunting household task – made smaller by chipping away at it.
Ten minutes of reading before bed.
Ten might be a small number but this small number is helping me be more productive. It’s helping me form good habits, the kind of habits that will help me get on. I want to be a writer but I wasn’t writing. I want to lose weight but I wasn’t exercising. I want to keep my new house tidy – this will be the hardest one.
It’s a start. I will build on this but in the meantime, ten minutes of effort goes a long way.
