I am a writer who is constantly bombarded with images, thoughts, and ideas. But I am also easily distracted, so if I focus on one idea, another will butt its way forward vying for attention.
Sometimes I am distracted by my distractions so I found the perfect book for myself, Driven to Distraction. I started reading it. And then I forgot I had it. What kind of book is that for people like myself who are distracted so much they can't even finish a book that teaches them how to help themselves with distraction?
Here are my blog and article updates:
