It's been an interesting week. One and a half snow days threw my schedule off completely.
But here are some of the writing-related things I did this week:
I wrote about 200 new words on a fiction WIP (not a ton, I know, but still)
I started an outline for a nonfiction work for hire project
I communicated with my new editor for same nonfiction project
I received a contract for a picture book manuscript (squee!)
I talked to an agent (not about representation, but it was a great convo)
So I just realized I had interaction with an editor, an agent, and a publisher--all in the last three days. Hmm. Not at all what I expected at the beginning of the week. The three interactions were all really different--but all of them were generous with their time and genuinely cool people. While I can't talk details, all three are sort of milling around in my brain competing for energy.
And distracting me from the actual work I should be doing. Writing. But in a good way.
OK, so the title of this post sort of suggests I'm going to explain how to ignore the distractions. Honestly I have no idea.
How do you tune out the distractions?
