Ann Patchett's New Year's Resolution to Make Time for Writing

Ann Patchett on a simple New Year’s resolution that will help you focus on your writing:

“I have long tried to fit my work in around all the other obligations in my life, and many days the work finds itself low on the list of things to do, way below laundry and replying to e-mail. Was it possible that by giving my art the same amount of time and attention that I gave to, say, meal preparation, my art might be more likely to flourish?”

Read her solution here, in the Washington Post’s special issue of BookWorld.


DC-area author Leslie Pietrzyk explores the creative process and all things literary.
