Why are you reading this?

If you're a writer, I have a question for you: how did you decide to read this blog post rather than work on your novel or story? By asking this question, I'm not not trying to turn away blog readers. (We love you, blog readers!) Instead, I'm trying to encourage balance in your writing life. Cory Doctorow, in his most recent article in Locus, discusses how he deals with "Writing in the Age of Distraction." His simple answer may surprise you. (Hint: it's perfectly fine to read this blog post, just make sure you've set aside time for writing as well!)

Thanks for the link, Editor Dave. :) There's some good advice here, like no email or research during writing time.
