I'm making use of Google Docs, including the calendar function. I made mention that I didn't keep a writing calendar this year and I really think it affected my productivity. For my regular journal, I like a dated, day by day calendar. For my writing, I used a month by month calendar and just jotted down my daily word count. I thought about using the Google docs calendar for that, but I noticed it has an hourly timeline on it. That's the problem with most online or electronic calendars - it's all about appointments. Then I thought... what about making appointments for the stuff I want to get done?
First, I admit, I went through and jotted in my "must see tv." Ok. I like a little tv. I have really really cut down my watching over the last few years. I have niche interests. I don't usually watch what everyone else is watching. I have only 4 or 5 must watch shows at a time, spread over the week. Then I went in and blocked out time to blog, just a half hour, then an hour for writing and an hour for editing. And I did all three of those things. Yay, Calendar! Yay, productivity!
Do not interfere with the will of the calendar!
