Inspired by my wife, who uses her first hour at work each day to concentrate on her scientific publications, I have started to use the first hour of my own workday to finish the transcription of my handwritten novel pages. My wife calls her initiative “Shut Up & Write” and I have adapted it to “Shut Up & Transcribe”. My hope is that, with a bit of concentrated effort, I can finally get this chore done. I’ve also placed a widget on my phone’s home screen to track how I am doing.
