I’m writing in 24 minute sessions today (and yesterday) and I thought I’d explain why.
24 minutes = .4 hours.
That’s why. :D .4 hours is very close to my favorite session length of 20 minutes but has a nice and even decimal equivalent in hours, much like 30 minutes at .5 hours.
Really, that’s it. That’s the reason for 24 minutes instead of 20 minutes or 25 minutes.
As for why it’s not just an even 30 minutes… Well. 30 minutes feels so much longer than 24.
It does! I’m not kidding. 30 minutes throws up all kinds of mental blocks for me that 24 minutes doesn’t. So there you go. Who said humans were rational beings? We really aren’t. :)
