Draft in progress: daily (1 hour) Hemingway re-read his draft from the beginning before starting to write for the day. I may not have enough time to do this after the first 17,000 words but I could perhaps read and edit a few chapters or divide the draft into three sections (beginning, middle, and end) and rotate reading them.
Writing: 2 hours daily (I know that Jim Lehrer goes to work one hour early and writes for an hour before he starts his day.)
Creative writing: 500-1000 words ("My mom is a writer, and she wrote a book on tips for writers. Write 1,000 words a day, or four pages. If you work or have kids, then make it 500 words a day." Lisa See)
Translation exercise: 1 to 10 sentences per day from English into Japanese into French
Red Room blog: every four days instead of the translation exercise?
