You Need 30 Minutes a Day To Write a Book.
Anna Sabino

Argh, once again the Writing Cooperative strikes with EXACTLY WHAT I NEED at the EXACT MOMENT I NEED IT!

I have the house to myself. I’ve got a pot of curried sausages on the stove, where it can sit — uninterrupted — for 45 minutes. I have a cold drink within arm’s reach and a comfortable body temperature and a fully charged laptop. It is the *perfect* time to sit down and bang out a blog post I’ve been taking notes on for weeks.

But the lure to “just check” my calendar to see if there was a full month (I’m not shitting you, I was literally looking for a full month within the next year) that I could block out to focus exclusively on my next project… it was just too strong. And then, I thought, I’d better “just check” Medium, because I haven’t looked at any of the great stuff that’s gone up today. And as I’m writing this, I’m thinking “what if those curried sausages could actually do with a stir”… WHEN I KNOW FULL WELL THAT THEY COULD NOT.

I am closing this Window and opening my Word document full of notes as soon as I hit “publish” on this comment. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
