WHAT IS TIME BLOCKING?

Knocking out two birds with one stone. Most folks think that way about multitasking. You can get more done in a day, right? A post on our IFW Writing for Adults blog by Chaunie Brusie, reminded me of an interview I heard about how it was possible to actually get more done if you worked on one thing at a time, so I wanted to share part of that post with you today. After a fair amount of research and personal experience, I believe focusing on one thing at time is more productive. Let's talk about how time blocking can help keep you focused while getting more accomplished.

Thank you for this great (and VERY helpful) podcast! I’m going to try to implement some of the points you suggested! And don’t worry— I’m passing it on to a number of my writing friends!

Great Read!

"This is another great read from [ICL]... When I saw this particular one, I grabbed it immediately ... This book is a great addition to a writer's (whether published or not) shelf ... I highly recommend their writing courses. You receive feedback on your work from published authors. You will be encouraged but also pushed to make your story from good to great."
