Tips from Cory Doctorow on writing while avoiding online distractions
If you’re like me, you’re wondering how to write blog posts on comics-related stuff and other neat things on the web, without getting too distracted by what else is on the web. It’s not an easy task, as anyone who’s seen my computer desktop, with 50 different windows open for different sites that I keep meaning to write up into blog posts are.
Luckily, one of those windows has an article from Cory Doctorow, who’s one of the most wired-up folks I know. IDW recently adapted a bunch of his short stories into comics, he’s one of the guys behind BoingBoing, and…
…sorry, I just spent ten minutes catching up on BoingBoing– apparently there’s a job opening for a science fiction writer, 16 grand for four months, but you have to be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada, dang it.
Anyway, Cory’s written a piece about writing in the age of distraction, which you should read. Or at least open it up and promise yourself you’ll read it later.
