This month I'm participating in the A to Z Challenge. My theme is indulgences. Today's letter is:
Today, I'm writing about something I spend far, far, far too much time on.
In addition to being a novelist, I'm also a freelance writer. Because I have so many clients, I have started turning away clients who say, right off the bat, "Can we have a quick phone call?"
I've learned over the years that some people work better by phone and some work better by email. I work better by email. Therefore, I work better with people who can express their thoughts through email. Once you realize that, life is much easier!
So I spend my day chained to my email. Luckily, over the past three years, I've collected a group of longtime clients who send me what they need. I do it and send it back. All is well.
Unfortunately, this means I spend far too much time on email!
How do you prefer to communicate with people? Do you find yourself preferring one method of communication over another?
