Deadly to creativity

It isn’t that writing is hard. Only that it’s so easy not to. Working on the computer, I can get lost in an email chain, a Twitter thread, or some random deep dive that the internet promises me will be fascinating. And it usually is.

But it’s the distraction that’s deadly. Deadly to creativity. 

I can’t say that you shouldn’t give yourself time to be distracted. 
But what I can say is, give yourself time to be creative as well. Time spent alone with just that creation – the one you’re working on. Because if you don’t give it time, it’ll never be created.
