A couple of months back, I came to terms with the fact that I needed to ease off my daily lunch hour trips to the library, my midday sanctuary where I’ve gotten lots of writing done over the years.

I’m now down to one trip a week. And to my surprise, I’ve learned that I get at least as much writing (or writing-related stuff) done sitting alone at my office as I do when I go to my beloved branch. Funny what not spending 15 minutes in the car and not having librarians to chat with and shelves full of distractions will do for one’s productivity.
