The Mad Writing Science Laboratory
No play allowed.
Why did this experiment come about?
Single word answer: Guilt
Longer answer: I have started taking more writer vacations to ensure mental health happiness. And since I was raised Catholic (some of the time), I get this cold, icky feeling of guilt each time I do. So, I invented this newest experiment.
How does the experiment work?
The first Monday after my writer vacation, I’m going to forget all that isn’t writing. No house cleaning. No exercise. No study lunch. No youtube videos (music is exempt). Just writing (and the yoga involved with that, because A.D.D. needs to be fended off). By 8:30 am, with breakfast and the dogs taken care of, I’ll be writing. I’ll be allowed an afternoon lunch break for dog/yard and food purposes. Then, back to it, until my phone alarm alerts me that my son will be home soon.
Note on Experiment:
I’ve never done this one. I will do it for the first time ever, next month.
I picked Monday, because is is my lightest housework day and one of my three “daytime” writing days. I risk the least amount of upset to my life. Though, sometimes I think I should be picking Wednesday, the day I return from my writing vacation. (This could become a tweak/change.)
Any questions about my experiment?
Do you do have a binge writing day?
Do you have any mad writing science laboratory experiments of your own?
