It’s April and it’s snowing out. That’s New England for ya.

Yesterday was perfect. Rachel and I had a productive day, working on our NaNo projects, blogs, and catching up on video games, all while snuggled inside the house while the wind and snow swirled around outside. This morning it’s still snowing and looks gorgeous, but…

Well, Rachel and I were talking about how we’re looking forward to retirement only so we could have days like that all the time. We were staring at the snow and lamenting the fact that we need to go to work.

Don’t get us wrong, we both enjoy our jobs and our coworkers are wonderful. We just had a great time being all productive, and today we have day jobs to go to.

It made us think last night, though. If we were able to have those 6 to 8 hours free from our weekdays to continue working on our writing all the time, would we be as productive? If we had every day free to write, would we still be able to be a disciplined? Were we that productive because we knew that we had work today?

What about you? What motivates your productivity?

    It was snowing this weekend in Ohio too. Obviously Mother Nature has a cruel sense of humor 😒 As far as productivity, I’ve found that having a paper planner where I write weekly and daily goals really helps to keep me motivated and on track.

    Deadlines motivate me, but they can’t be deadlines I set for myself apparently. They must be set by other people. That’s why Camp NaNo and NaNo are good for me. They keep me balanced.

    Enjoy the snow! 🙂

    I’m hoping we would continue to treat writing and blogging as our day jobs and still be productive!
