Caro, have you ever heard of the book The 8 Minute Writing Habit by Monica Leonelle? I went to a talk where Darynda Jones mentioned this book helped her, so I bought it. It made me feel so much better about my months of 15-minute workdays in 2018 while my father-in-law was dying.
Her entire set on audio is very affordable. I wonder if that might help? I was actually thinking of doing a productivity challenge based on the book.
If you’d rather read it (and have time) I can loan it to you through Kindle. 🙂 Just email me. firstname.lastname@example.org
