HIGHLIGHTED LIFE: Be better than "busy" →
So, so true. jamesnord: I hear it a couple times a day, “I have just been so busy” and it’s the most boring answer to the simple question of, “how are things going”.

“You seem to think the writer has a choice—whether to work here or there or run off to a war. Maybe it’s an American middle-class question, because in most places writers don’t have a choice.
