Sit down and write all your posts for when you will not be writing. Do not try to make them perfect. At least not this time Remember, your goal is to have these posts written down as quickly as possible. Set the alarm for 30 minutes and start writing. Consider it done when 30 min have passed.
Schedule your posts so they get published automatically on the day and at the time that you want. Before scheduling, you can give a final proofread, but resist the temptation to rewrite.
