It will take an estimated 10 minutes or so.
(Timed 10 minutes to focus on one thing, rather than be drawn in several directions at once: are you also a fan of that approach? A previous blog about reading mentions this too.)
Who knows, I may even manage a letter once a week.
Do I do this already? Occasionally, patchily, sometimes.
