#Reverb10 2. Writing


Second in the #Reverb10 series: Writing.
From Leo Babauta: What do you do each day that doesn’t contribute to your writing — and can you eliminate it? 
I'm going the cheap route. Nothing.
I dare say EVERYTHING you do contributes to YOUR writing. Sure, the question implies that you can prioritize your life and cut something out like a dead limb.
This might be true for a lot of people. And YES, I can prioritize, but cut that limb? I don't think I can see it.
There are moments of slackadastical behavior I have no doubt that I could eliminate, but who doesn't need down time?
There are moments of sheer do-nothing, but those usual involve my kids- those aren't going anywhere.
I am sure I could crystalize some truly WASTED seconds, but I doubt it would RADICALLY improve my writing.
Would it any more than reading a myriad of blogs, newspapers, magazines, books that I enjoy? Probably not.
Would it any more than the radio I enjoy listening to? Probably not.
If you can eliminate something, more power to you, but for me, right now- I'm not eliminating anything.
