Interruption Central — if you have blood pouring profusely from your head, a bone sticking through your skin, or a tool lodged where it shouldn’t be, please proceed to the front of the line. All others kindly take a number and wait.
Yes, Wednesday was one of those days. I sit at my desk, compose my thoughts, lift my fingers to type the first part of a brilliant sentence, and bam – speed bump, train derailment, clean up on aisle three. I read a study that says you require15 minutes to return to productivity after an interruption. I believe it. Where was I? What was my point? I haven’t a clue. It looks like I’m starting over. Again.
No matter the challenges and the obstacles blocking my way, I maintain the item at the top of my list as a non-negotiable. Yesterday I wrote 381 words.
Did you write yesterday?
Keep on writing.
