Day 57 – Timer

I time my writing sessions. Since the beginning of this project, I've been using the timer on my phone. Huge mistake. Huge. My phone vibrates, it pings, it's just too damn easy to pick up and shoot that email to so and so about that thing I forgot. Which I probably forgot because it wasn't that important anyway. Ugh! So today I declared enough and bought myself a cute little timer from Anthropologie. No only is it cute, it ticks. A quick little clip clop like a trotting pony. I used it today for the first time and my ability to focus improved exponentially. Why did I wait over 56 days to do myself this favor? Like writing isn't hard enough as it is. Le sigh.
