My Kitchen Timer Has Told Me I'm Done Here!

So I followed the advice of a professional writer who uses a timer.This fellow makes over $40,000.00 a month publishing Kindle books. I wrote one and have not made a sale yet. It's all marketing right?

My timer is a ladybug design - the old wind up style.

And I'm already into overtime! I gave myself 2 hrs on Persona Paper and how quickly it flew!

My next task today is to update as many as I can of 300+ articles on Ezinearticles.

I have dreaded this. But links get old, and data gets old. If I think more about that I'll start feeling old! (I am "old" officially).

Before I go just a few personal notes - since this is "Persona"l!

I started watching "Narcos" on Netflix. Rough stuff! it is kind of like the back end of "Miami Vice" if any of you saw and remember that series from the 80's. Drug lords, up close and personal. I have viewed 4 episodes, but it's not good for binge watching. It convinces me anew that the only solution would be to legalize it all.

No, that would not stop the smuggling, only diminish it. And adults would have to actually be adults - "hmmm...should I snort this or not?" I bet you though, that right now the adults who "just say no" don't pass up the snort because it's illegal, but because they don't want to! O.K. enough of that hot topic.

As a relief from "Narcos" I started watching "Crossing Lines" about law enforcement in a fictional International cop group in Europe. Firstly I haven't been in Europe for a long time, so it's kind of like a travelogue. Secondly, it's network TV so the violence is more prop-like. With many "that would never happen" scenes such as a cop rifling through a deceased's things not wearing latex gloves. That would never happen!

But it's just TV. And more of that - when my timer tells me I'm done house cleaning on Ezinearticles.

Later! (I hope that doesn't mean next month lol!)

I need to see if I can find an old-fashioned timer to do the same. See you soon!

I might have to take that advice and see how it helps me. I know when I am cleaning house, I try to set a timer to make sure that I stay on task as I know I only have to work until the timer goes off. Good Luck with all your endeavors

When my time is up on Persona Paper my ''timer'' usually comes storming up the stairs to tell me it's time to go to bed! emoticon :smile:

I have tried using a timer to help me keep to a schedule before. Now where is that thing. i used to be able to throw a lot farther in the old days. No telling where it landed.

I have never used a timer. It pressures me a lot and I am annoyed.

A timer is useful. I have 2, one that counts up and one thatcounts down. I also used to have a gym boss that counted two different times simultaneously (exercise for 30 seconds, rest for 10 seconds, repeat) but my daughter "liberated" it. emoticon :grin:

I keep trying to use a timer. I find it too easy to just reset it. :(
