December 2 – Writing. What do you do each day that doesn’t contribute to your writing — and can you eliminate it? (Author: Leo Babauta)
Writing is a hobby for me. I don’t get nearly as much time to do it as I would like, but I take every opportunity I can, even losing sleep when I really want get a post written.
I fell into blogging by accident (as much as you can accidentally sign up for and start a blog) and realized that I loved writing in a way I never thought I would. It’s cathartic and cleansing.
And yet…anytime I am composing my thoughtfully worded pieces, I stop to check Facebook, research this, tweet that, email the other. It’s like living a William Faulkner novel. My conscious self remembers something that needs to be done and I jump to go do it.
Perhaps I should create my own version of a dumb terminal with no Internet access so I can focus on what I’m writing for once.
