I’m back home after my mini-tour. I blogged about that last week, and all-in-all, I think it was time well spent.
Except for the writing part.
Usually I can write when I travel, but that’s when I fly to a conference and am at the same hotel for five days straight. I set aside writing time on a schedule so I know I’ll always put in my hours — the time changes depending on what I need to do at the conference, but I usually work either four hours in the morning or four hours in the afternoon. This helps me stay on track, even though it’s a shorter writing block than I typically write.
But when you’re jumping from place to place and spending time in airports and in transit, writing is next to impossible. I HAVE written in airports, but I need at least 90 minutes to be marginally productive.
