Recently I have thrown a lot of the things in my life that I am not completely dedicated to out of my schedule, and instead the few hours I have to myself in the morning I have delegated to my autodidact studies. I am striving to write for 1 hour a day, to read for at least 1 hour a day where in silence I can completely focus on the text on hand, I also try to listen to one of The Great Courses lectures. I am also going to try to incorporate cello practice into my daily schedule as soon as I start taking lessons.
I recently went to the local music store and aquired a cello rental, I had to give up the violin because the awkward angle managed to irritate my prior wrist injuries and always made my wrist hurt long after practice and lessons. Hopefully the cello will not bother me as much as the violin had. I figure I will not be able to start cello lessons for at least 2 weeks. I am hoping the instructor will allow me two lessons a week. I really want to focus as intently as I can on studying the cello in addition to focusing on the autodidact studies.
Right now I am feeling bit overwhelmed because in order to improve my writing I am startin back over the basics. Joshua Fields Millburn's How to Write Better course has it's students start by reading various grammar books. Starting from the beginner stage has deafinitely left me feeling a bit overwhelmed because grammar has never been my strong suit. With a tendency to write like I talk and writing in extensive run on sentences I know that I have to really focus on improving my basic skills. Truthfully I am feeling a bit overwhelmed by the whole undertaking, but I suppose that inorder to really write the way that I wish to, I must concentrate on exploring the great writers from my literary undertaking and focus on how to truly improve my writing skills.
