There is a good reason why people give the advice to "write every day." I'm serious. I know people claim they can go away from a project for long periods of time and still get back to it, or that they "only can concentrate in large unbroken blocks of time," but I call bullshit. Sure, you may not get actual writing done every day, but you really need to revisit your project every day, if even for only a few minutes so that you remember where you are in it, what was next to do on your list, and a rough memory of why you have decided not to do it that way, because that way was a dead-end that ate up major time last time you worked on it extensively.
I am so so frustrated at myself, because I know that each time I have come back to this thing I have spent at least a day figuring out what I have done and still need to do and what is still wrong with the article. And I keep taking a week of work on it, of which the first day is just this figuring out the lay of the land and trying to get some momentum going. And then something else comes along and I go away from it for months because emergencies have come up and then I will go back through this whole damn process once again!
I just want this crap to be done with and sent off. If only I could get it moving again. Anyone wanna give me a push?
