Be ruthless about protecting writing days

22 October 2019

Be ruthless about protecting writing days, i.e., do not cave in to endless requests to have ‘essential’ and ‘long overdue’ meetings on those days. The funny thing is that, although writing has been my actual job for several years now, I still seem to have to fight for time in which to do it. Some people do not seem to grasp that I still have to sit down in peace and write the books, apparently believing that they pop up like mushrooms without my connivance.

  1. I used to get that, too. Now I screen my calls, and if it’s my 82-year-old Mom asking if I’m busy, I tell her I’m working. She still tells be whatever she called about (do I care that she saw a squirrel?), but calls far less often.

  2. Connivance?

  3. Thank so much for the enlightmen
