The beginning of last week was a little overwhelming with a bunch of non-writing things to do: the eye doctor for me, the vet for the cat, concern over my brother’s surgery, taking time to listen to a great webinar, and having a Skype chat with Dennis Smith, a fellow Udemy instructor. But between all of those things I actually managed to get a significant amount of work done. That’s because I’ve learned how to sandwich writing in-between other tasks.
I think when you have a real life, you just don’t have time to sit down and devote eight hours to writing. At least I don’t. So, I sandwich.
I get a lot of emails asking how I manage to be so productive. I even received a tweet from Joanna Penn, British author of thriller novels, who tweeted:
@nhendrickson1 you’re such a productivity whizz Nancy! And now you know the secret: Sandwiching.
I’ve been thinking about the sandwich method so much that I actually started creating a new course on the topic. I hope to release it by next week . . . so stay tuned. It’s going to be only about an hour long (I did this on purpose) priced at $29 initially, but I’m releasing it for free to anyone who’s subscribed to my newsletter. Just my way of saying “thanks” for your support.
So if you have a life – and I hope you do – be watching your email box for news on the course launch.
