Dear @@first_name@@,

It was moving tonight to hear so much good news: manuscripts out the door, daily writing habits solidified, book proposals completed, and letting go of things that you really don't want to do in order to make room for the things you love! All of that is cause for celebration, especially when it's accompanied by so much progress on the process of getting things done and making important daily decisions about your time! If you missed the call, you can download it from our online community (in the "homework" tab).

This week's homework is:

1. Hold a Weekly Planning Meeting.

2. Post your daily writing update and daily treat in our online community.

3. This is self-care week! So I challenge each of you to SLEEP (AT LEAST) 8 HOURS PER NIGHT and/or TAKE THE WEEKEND OFF! That's right, I want you to commit to a full night of sleep every night this week (unless a new baby precludes that possibility!) so you can fully rest and recharge. If you're unable to sleep 8 hours per/night, it's time to ask yourself: why? Do you need to adjust your bedtime or bedtime routine, a quick fix for a night-time disturbance, and/or are you awakened by anxiety? As always, if you can identify the problem then it's time to ask if there is anything you can do about it? These are the questions that such an assignment is intended to elicit so feel free to reflect on this in your daily updates. You'll also see a new question in your daily progress update that will help you to track the number of hours you slept each night this week.

I also put a few sleep resources for you in our online community:

In the large group forum, there's a short NYT article entitled: How Little Sleep Can You Get Away With?

In the Tele-Workshop Library, there's a 60 minute audio: The 5 Zee's  to a Great Night's Sleep

If you're one of the 15% of people in our group who are already sleeping 8 hours every night, CONGRATULATIONS! I want you to try the advanced version and TAKE THE WEEKEND OFF. This requires the same process as sleeping 8 hours: 1) recognizing that you may have been using weekends as the bank to draw time for whatever doesn’t get done during the week, 2) figure out what would be required to make it happen, and 3) if you can’t do it, ask yourself why? And if you're already sleeping 8 hours AND taking the weekend off -- you're a bad-ass and you can choose whatever self-care you like!

I hope this week bring you lots of sleep, great small group discussion, solid progress in your daily writing AND the weekend off!!!!

Good luck!
