Jacob Paul Recommends...


“The time I spend in the saddle on long bicycle tours—day after day, with no clear sense of where I might camp or buy food or shower—influences my writing process. To keep pedaling I have to stop thinking about how far I’ve gone, or how fast I’m going, or what lies ahead. When I can do that in the saddle, I can also do it at the computer. So, when I get stuck with my writing, as I did this past summer between acts four and five of my new novel, I hit the road. I write on rest days in coffee shops or diners or on campground picnic tables. And when I get home, the benefits last awhile. I can sit for a few hours and produce, without worrying about how many pages are behind or ahead.”
