Thoughts on time from writer Jenny Odell, four approaches to finding time to write, audiobook giveaway, and inspiration from 'part-time' writer Martin Amis RIP.
I am thinking of writing a blog with some of my favourite time management books. Is that the sort of thing you'd like to read? Would it be helpful? Let me know and I can pull one together (gives me an excuse to tidy bookshelves and revisit some recommended reads).
Great post, I’ve been curious about the new Jenny Odell book and how she approaches time. My preference is daily writing but I’m just about to start a contract which will mean I have to travel to an office 2 days a week so won’t be able to join The London Writers Salon session I usually do everyday. I’m worried about falling out of the daily habit.
Time (and energy) to write can be difficult to find when you fitting it in amongst caring duties and other ad hoc work. A blog and your book would no doubt help with motivation and give me tips on how to juggle! 😀
An African proverb says, "When an elder dies, a library burns to the ground." In my mother's case, you can throw in a church and school as well. I am determined to record our family history on her side of the family (her siblings, parents and grandparents) before she passes. Mom is the last one standing of any of these folks and her mind is sharp and insightful, but she is in her 93rd year. The clock is ticking. I retired early in order to overlay her insights on the social history of the time, but I need more than time. I need a routine! I expect "Written: How to Keep Writing and Build a Habit that Lasts" will help.
