Writing can feel like a colossal waste of time. Certainly there are better things you could be doing. Like dusting the blinds, clearing your inbox, or picking off your gel nail polish. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that.) Similar to home improvement, writing inevitably takes at least three times longer than we think it should.
Just because writing can take a long time, does not mean that the time is wasted, or frittered, or lost.
