“Being a good writer is 3% talent, 97% not being distracted by the internet.”
Today’s quote reminds me of one of my father’s favourite quotes :
” Genius is 1 % inspiration, and 99 % perspiration.”
Maybe today’s quote is an updated version of this older one. Genius or inspiration has been upgraded to 3 %. You can equate ‘staying off the Internet’ with hard work.
Arguably, writers need to research and these days that involves the Internet. However, it is so easy to fall down rabbit holes like Instagram or other social media. Before you know it, precious writing time is over.
My daughter has set a 15 minute timer on her Instagram. I think it would be a good idea if I did the same.
