Okay, blog readers. I need your best tips.
I recently finished a major project (not a writing project, alas) that was sucking up all my time and energy. That was over two weeks ago. I’ve been reading and relaxing and recovering, which is all fine and good, but I’ve been having a heck of a time getting anything done. It’s sort of like post-NaNo slump, except I don’t feel drained, just unmotivated.
Since a lot of things were put on the back burner, I can’t just continue doing nothing. I need to restart my productivity engines.
One part of the problem is that there are multiple areas in need of attention:
- My house needs some love.
- My writing needs some time devoted to it.
- Lots of administrative tasks need doing.
- There’s another big non-writing project coming up.
Faced with competing priorities like this, I tend to freeze up and not get any of them done. The project I just finished was nice that way because I could just ignore everything else until it was over…but now it’s over.
So now it’s your turn. What are your best tips for being productive or for getting through a productivity slump?
