I have just come across this email exchange between Karin Slaughter and Lee Child, talking about the writing life and specifics on writing thrillers. Having read books by both these authors, I loved reading about their exchange in opinions and hearing about the writing of their books.
If you’re interested on reading the exchange too, follow this link for the full exchange that was uploaded to Karin Slaughter’s website a few years back.
I just saw this on Joseph Finder’s website here and I really want one now!
There are hourglasses that run for thirty or sixty minutes and he uses them as a productivity tool: he will keep writing until the sand has run out!
Does anyone else use this as a productivity tool?
I really want one! I’ve checked Amazon and Ebay, but the nice ones that run 60 minutes are all fifty+ bucks.. Now I must decide whether it’s worth that much or not…! I think it would be cool for writing sprints, though perhaps a ten minute one would suffice for that..
