Disruption: The D-Factor

Posted on April 25, 2009. Filed under: Panic, Staying-With-It, writing | Tags: , , , , , , |

This morning has been very weird.  Everything has halts and errors.  Doing something very numerically intensive this morning.  Somehow opened files in a backup directory and data was “missing.”  Did my stuff only to find out these were backup files.  Had to merge with regular files.  Problems all morning.

All these disruptions made a process that normally takes about 45 minutes take over two hours and twenty minutes.  I have watched this for many years; I call it the “D-Factor.”

By definition, the D-Factor is any kind of disruption that provides no benefit but steals from beneficial (especially) creative processes, such as writing.  I had more to say this morning, here, but the crap (errors and delays and re-do’s) killed the time needed for creative process.  Many, many 😦
