Thanks for keeping an eye on me! Which is good, because...
DAY 9 - JUNE 12, 2009
...I feel burned out.
I guess that's what happens when you do the same things relentless every day-calling people, looking for work. I'm not a rigid kind of guy. I like to mix up my work. And now that I feel a big crash coming, it's time to back off and spend a few days doing more creative things to aid my goals.
I did manage to get a few things done today, though, like make a breakthrough in my joke-writing method. It's just like when writing other articles-use the techniques I know to slap down a joke fast, then come back later and fiddle with it. And if it's not perfect, move on. The New Comedy Writing Step by Step recommends a daily quota-I think I should start considering it.
I also managed to make a prospect list for blogs and websites to query, but other than that, not much. So let's work smarter, not harder. Saturday and Sunday will be used to recover, and I'm going to plan Mon-Fri differently.
For Saturday, I'm going to take it a bit easy and work on personal projects. (These will have the added benefit of marketing my services, though.) I also plan to mosey over to the library and look for some new comedy material to read/watch. Hopefully it should be more refreshing than the heavy workload I've had this week. If not, I'll back up even more for Sunday.
