I wish I could. After ten years as a journalist and two years as an academic, my brain is hardwired this way and I doubt it will ever change. :)

I’ve been doing all the other things you mentioned in your comment, though, so hopefully I’m on the right track.

I write short stories. I also write about writing. If I'm procrastinating on both, I write about why I haven't been writing. E-mail: danbelmontwriter@gmail.com
