Texture of Accomplishment
My friend Joan has some interesting thoughts on the habits of writing. And she quotes me!
In early August, my laptop turned into a beast. It chewed through time like I chew through licorice whips. Snap, munch, yum, next hour, please.
It’s not like I was perfecting the craft of procrastination. Honest. I was working. I designed book covers, formatted ebooks and print books, updated webpages, created a whole new website. I was crazy busy and still not getting any writing done. Every morning, I put my butt in my chair, and my hands on the keyboard and did everything except write story words.
And I was getting madder and madder at myself.
Then, I read a productivity book. I don’t usually like self-help books. I find most of them a little too “magical elixir” if you know what I mean. Just do precisely what the author says and you’ll sell a million books, lose a pound every time you blink, AND rule the world. Yeah. Right.
