What triggers you?
January 22, 2018

Posts, pitches, prep for the talk show. My work involves a lot of writing, and I love that. But on a recent afternoon I struggled. What the heck? Writing almost comes easily. I rarely face a blank screen with anything but delicious anticipation.

What happened?


The next day, writing to music the way I almost always do, I remembered that the day before I’d left my headphones tucked in their little dog bed under my desk. We splurge on good headphones because of our radio work, and I thought I’d save a step by not getting them out. Only to prove once again what I once heard: “A shortcut is the longest distance between two points.”

Music is to writing what at least a few pages out of a “real” book (as opposed to a Kindle) is to sleep.

Good to know!
