How many times have you headed to your writing nook to start writing when after a few minutes of writing (or good gravy, before you even begin!) you check your email? And then you decide to pop on over to check your Facebook? And then why not peep at Twitter? And by that time you’re all in, so why not all of your social media sites? In order to write serenely, smoothly and swiftly one must avoid distractions.
I understand we all have responsibilities and since we may not be able to completely “go off the grid” to evade interruptions we can at least minimize them.
Distraction Free Writing Tip #1: Turn off Electronic Devices!
To avoid electronic diversions simply unplug! If you want to make the most out of your writing session you have to disengage from your Wi-Fi and begin writing. You simply cannot write well if you’re constantly flipping between Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and your email accounts.
