The Summer of George

I know. I've been inconsistent my sweet little blog but I seem to be enjoying The Summer of George and I can't lay off the cheese. It is stinky and delicious. So all of you who maintain a consistent blog update: well done. We've got 3 weeks till school starts, I'll try to be better but I need to be writing more than blogging and this sucks at my time.

Those of you who keep it consistent, how do you manage blog posting/reading so that it doesn't suck away your writing time?


  1. You're home! I've missed you out and about internet-land.

    Only recently I've come up with a M-W-F pattern (Mon=MMGM, Wed=writing blurb, Fri=free-for-all). I read much in advance and plan my MMGM and try to write each one by the Fri before it posts. My Wed and Fri posts I write whenever and schedule them. So my blogging time comes whenever I can eek out a minute to write a post. Or if an idea hits, I write it down so I don't forget the idea later. Blogging does take away from writing time, but it's also fun for me and provides a break from other writing. Long answer, but it's what works for me.

  2. Oh, Brooke ... you running competition for the "man-candy" posts?

    On a serious note, I switched my creative writing time to the mornings ... and my "production" has increased by a third. Three pages instead of two. You just have to experiment until you find what's best for you.

  3. LOL. I feel like it all takes up too much time. I have to be really disciplined about squeezing in the writing time. I don't know how people write blog posts 3-5 times a week. With work & family too, once a week of writing a blog post is enough for me.

  4. Hey! Enjoy your summer...three weeks will go by sooo fast. And Summer of George...oh. my. toooooOOo funny!!! Thanks for sharing!
