"Please excuse me."
"Well certainly, you're excused."
So goes the conversation between the brain and the brain. And so goes writing efficiency and productivity. The new writing dynamic states that volume is the key. That is the wisdom of today. A writer can't expect to survive on one book a year, or several short stories or a few blog posts. A writer today must have volume.
Yet, life happens, especially for those individuals who are not making enough money to survive solely as writers. What to do? Listen to the brain, or tell the brain to shut the f*ck up? I say, tell your damn brain to go diddle itself.
Excuses are for never-beens and wannabes. You're not one of those, are you?
