How Much Time Do You Waste?

I am working with a truly talented scholar who has been working on finding consistency in her writing. Recently, we agreed that she should figure out how much time she spends on her cell phone, specifically during writing sessions.

And how much time did she waste in one day?

47 minutes.

How much time to you waste when you are supposed to be writing?

Text messages? Email? Cell phones? Internet?

What is more important to you, thriving as a scholar, or being "connected 24/7?

  1. my colleagues and I have been doing weekly 3-hour writing group sesssions where we turn off cell phones and email, write for 50 min, take a break, talk about what we are writing, then go back to writing. This evolved out of some writing retreat that I led with a colleague, somewhat inspired by Rowena Murray's writings. It works!
