Attention to Detail

Somebody, somewhere, said something like our attention is our most precious resource. I wish I could remember who but I wasn’t paying very close attention when I heard it.

Jane Espenson recently wrote about a novel in which the author spent ten pages describing inconsequential minutiae to build tension. There may have been a really good point in the entry but I don’t know: I closed the browser window halfway through the paragraph because I got bored reading about someone reading about inconsequential minutiae.

Life is short; don’t waste it on boring things. Including this entry.
