Today's #reverb10 prompt: Writing. What do you do each day that doesn't contribute to your writing--and can you eliminate it? (Author: Leo Babauta)
Work. It contributes to my writing because I teach writing. It also gives me plenty of writing fodder, but much of that is unbloggable because of privacy issues. I guess you could argue that the income my job provides allows me to write, too, if you want to get all persnickety about it. However, all the mundane tasks that go along with this calling o' mine suck up my time, brainpower and motivation.
Can I eliminate it? Negatory. But I can relish the breaks and make the most of them, which I plan to do in just 16 days.
