The little calendar in which you keep track of how many days in a row you work on your project should be a kind of magical object. I view my calendar as a source of power, using a kind of "magical thinking" that is also wholly realistic. After all, I have a printed book in my hands--written by me and using this exact method. The hour a day I am able to spend now on my new project also feels like a source of power to me: I know where that place is and how to get there. I know it sounds kind of new-agey, but I think of that time as a refuge and a source of energy. That makes me want to go there rather than thinking of it as a place where I'm too exhausted to visit.
