1.) I am incapable of working with any semblance of depth on more than one fiction project per day, no matter how removed they may be from one another in form, content, or medium.

2.) Workblocks must be scheduled close together; any gap of longer than an hour - two at most - and I have to spend most of the second block starting over because I’ve forgotten everything I’ve written.

3.) Specific tasks and small assignments done in a disciplined, single-task manner are the key that keeps my brain open long enough to produce something, anything, of value upon which I can build the next day.
