In the past I’ve been both distracted and detracted from writing. The job of teaching has weighed on me to the point where I both did not have the time and energy (detractions) to write or I did not have the concentration (distraction) to write. With my new paradigm shift (without a clutch) I’m minimizing the distractions and detractions to focus on more creative endeavors.
Hopefully it will pay off. Hopefully my new direction will not provide new detractions and distractions.
