This week, we had a nuts-and-bolts focus on getting more of the right things done in your writing and business life.
On Monday, Stefanie Flaxman reminded us of the soul-crushing boredom that arises in our poor readers when we force them to wade through endless paragraphs before we get to the good stuff in our writing. There is a better way! Stefanie walks you through how to get a faster start: In Search of Better Introductions
On Tuesday, Loryn Cole talked about how we can approach digital tools in a more mindful way, and really think about their purpose in our lives. How Wrenches Changed the Way I Think about Digital Tools
And on Wednesday, I announced our new book club selection for November — James Clear’s Atomic Habits. We hope you’ll join in the conversation and start working on the habits that will serve your goals and create a more magnificent work and personal life.
Over on The Writer Files podcast, Kelton Reid continued his conversation with writer and Twitter sensation James Breakwell about workflow and process, preserving your enjoyment of your work over the long haul, and the weirdness of internet fame.
That’s the content for this week … catch you next time!
