My brain has been completely fried. It feels achy and fuzzy, like I’m hung over from a serious drinking bout. Only I’m a tea-totaller.
I’ve been doing lot of revising and rewriting – for both work-related projects and my own creative writing stuff, and it's hard going. I’ve previously mentioned that I have a very short attention span, so it’s hard read analytically and remain focused for long periods of time.
So I look for excuses to do something else– like take a tea break, respond to emails that are not really urgent, post on the blog ( doing this post was an escape) and read my favourite online publications. I knew things were bad when I realized I’d been staring into space for over 5 minutes, thinking about nothing in particular.
Any strategies for staying focused while you revise your work, especially for those with a short attention span, would be greatly appreciated.
