Here’s How Austin Kleon Writes

How many hours a day do you spend actually writing (excluding email, social media etc.)?

I sort of resent the distinction. It’s all writing. It’s all typing into boxes. The thing is, I don’t know what writing is going to really get me somewhere — I’ve typed tweets that have turned into blog posts that have turned into book chapters.

I don’t make a distinction between little writing and Big Writing. It’s all part of the same process. So, I’ll say: I spend at least 2 hours a day typing into boxes.

Writing today is one continuous state of connectivity.
