Should You Go Down the Rabbit Hole?
The medical and CME writers I teach often worry about how to rein in a tendency to burrow into the rabbit hole.
If you’re a medical writer, I’m sure you know what I mean. That tendency to get led into or follow the delicious temptations of information, data, and stories that bear a family resemblance to the project you’re working on, but are not quite on track.
The stories that are fascinating and feed your mind, but don’t necessarily move your project any closer to a conclusion.
Like you, I’m up against the challenge of the rabbit hole too.
But instead of seeing rabbit holes as something that derails us, perhaps it’s possible to view them as gifts.
In today’s episode, I share a process that accommodates the pleasure of following where the rabbit hole leads and supports the time frame you typically have to do your work.
