The weekly email with calls for songs arrived a few minutes ago — and I’ve already pitched a song in response to one listing. Man, it’s been a while since there’ve been any opportunities listed that match material we have demo’ed. It’s nice to be back in the game. The waiting game. That part I don’t so much love, but I guess it’s all part of the deal.

Speaking of waiting, I’ve been totally slacking about writing anything new since I started the new job. It’s always that way until I get my bearings in a new job, but I think I’ve let myself dawdle long enough. I’ve been working this week on tightening up my schedule so I have enough time to run in the mornings before work; the next step is to make enough time in the evenings for writing. I remember now that the way I did this when I started at HCA was to actually schedule blocks of time in my calendar when I was supposed to be writing. I hardly ever stuck to it exactly, but I did end up making more time to write because the reminder was there. I guess I can try that approach again.

When you have to make adjustments to your routines, what works for you? How do you get yourself to adopt new, good habits (or re-adopt old, good habits you’ve dropped)?

And… we’re back! And… we slack.

    Adopt good habits? Adopt GOOD habits? What kind of heresy are you speaking, woman?

    start small and lots of rewards.

    I have to wash at least ONE item of hand wash dishes a day – can just be rincing out a shot glass, and often when I start I will do more, but HAVE to do at least one item a day.

    Usually I will reward myself with a cup of coffee – so start the coffe maker and do the hand wash and then drink coffee
