Retreating into editing

Next week I’ve set myself a challenge. I’m going to finish the edits on my as yet unpublished book once and for all. Yes it’s a bit of a challenge but I’m confident I can do it.

So in line with an earlier post about retreating I’m preparing for the week. I’ve booked the time off work, am planning how to tackle it and even doing some cooking so I don’t have to do it next week. And this does include naughty treats as well!

Editing and working on this book has been dragging on for far too long; as one friend put it “it’s so close – just bloody get it done”. With encouragement like that, you’ve got to do it haven’t you?

My plan is to work on the book as if its my 9 to 5 and make the maximum amount of progress. But it has to be planned. So every day will be organised into a daily diary so I can monitor progress. I’ll be making full use of my CDs of writing music as well as Classic FM for my entertainment.

Social media will be a no-no – it’s not allowed in my bootcamp. So if you don’t hear from me in a little while, don’t panic. I’m only retreating!

I’ll post after bootcamp and let you know how I got on. Wish me luck!

If you want to do retreating in true style, then check out Retreats for You. I’ve blogged about it here.
