On the other hand, as much as I enjoy writing I’m one of those people who can only ever write in hour long bursts. It probably has something to do with the way I plan my writing sessions. Whenever I finish working on a project for the day, I’ll usually spend some of the time between then and the next session thinking about what I’m going to do next. For whatever reason that planning only ever gives me enough to be working on for about an hour.
Recently I decided to try a different approach. I’ve got a couple of projects on the go, so I figured why not try working on them all at the same time. Now I’m still only able to write in hour long bursts on any one project, but the surprising thing I’ve found is I can work on more than one project a day. So I’ll get an hour with a short story I’m writing, an hour on the novel, and another hour touching up the ‘finished’ novel.
I’m envious of people with longer attention spans, but … no it’s gone.
