    Sounds good to me. An additional tip for the newer and experienced writer, and what works for me: the only thing I ever did on Fridays throughout my first several years of teaching was write. It’s surprising how much progress can be made if you absolutely dedicate a regular discrete block of time to writing, and nothing else. Any day or group of hours works, but leading writers, in various fields, attest to the payoff of having dedicated blocks when nothing else but writing goes on. I still allocate discrete times for writing that I jealously guard, though the exact times vary by semester and season.
