Technology sucks –
Pulling blinders upon us
The seasons pass by
David Morrell said “Write the book you want to write,” during his keynote at the San Francisco Writers Conference. I’ve been thinking on this since then. What is the book I want to write? Are the books I’m working on really the books I want to put out there in the world? And if I really want to write these books, what keeps me from focusing in on them and getting them done? There are plenty of demands on time and focus in my life and only so many hours in the day (and night – but I really enjoy sleep occasionally). These suck up the available hours and minutes, but where could I reallocate the available resources? That is my question for today – Where can I reallocate time in order to support improved writing focus?
