Blog semi-break

Over the next couple of weeks I plan to do some intensive writing. First, it'll probably take me a couple of days to get some files organised and some structure re-planned. Then, by the beginning of May at the latest, I'll be hoping to turn out 2000 words per day - I have a lot of material in rough form, waiting to be cannibalised, so I won't be doing this entirely from scratch, so therefore it's doable, even though the job will be finicky.

But I need to get into a headspace where I'm not too distracted by debates on other matters, so that will mean trying to cut down my time writing blog posts (and commenting on other people's blogs). It will also mean spending spare time relaxing with loved ones rather than too much of it arguing with people who are Wrong on the Internet (or even giving kudos to people who are Right on the Internet). I won't be able to resist the temptation to blog to some extent - I know myself that well - but at least I won't feel a responsibility to blog each day, as is normally the case. Quite the opposite: I'll feel a responsibility to avoid doing that.

So, with any luck, I'll be a bit scarcer for the immediate future. If that happens, you'll know why. OTOH, don't stop checking; I won't be gone altogether.

I'm off to a good start. I expect to make 3000 words today.

Nice.
Watcha writing?

Sean P said...

Good luck Russell!

Russell Blackford said...

Well, trying to write a book about freedom of religion.

I wonder if talking to someone who understands one section of faith would help or hinder your argument?

Good luck.
I think it's always more effective when the argument comes from ones own countryman. Besides, Australia really needs to get the whole "freedom or religion" thing sorted and I think you'd do one hell of good job helping it along.

Hello. Often the Internet can see links like [url=http://www.whitehutchinson.com/aboutus/]Buy cialis without prescription[/url] or [url=http://www.rc.umd.edu/bibliographies/]Buy cialis without prescription[/url]. Is it safe to buy in pharmacies such goods?
