At the time of writing this, the 18th of February 2014, I, Charli, have 11 reviews to write. Half of them have deadlines and half of them haven't even had their notes compiled yet. SO. My question today: Do YOU take a break, if you have too many reviews to write?This is completely forgetting about any other circumstances, of course. Exams, stress, anything like this. No, I mean, completely because there are too many deadlines.
I don't. I won't. Because...
Taking a break won't make the deadlines and reviews go away, will they?! They'll just prolong them. SO, I say, slowly tackle them. Don't request any more books, don't feel the need to review any bought or gifted books if you don't have the time, and just chill.
Write a review a day, or set small targets.
Me and Debbie have been speaking about this, because Debbie has NetGalley problems. The short story is that we both have a massive list of reviews to write and TBR to read.
What I'm trying to do is write one review a day, compile one book of notes a day, read 50 pages or so of a book a day.
It's working so far.
