Find Time For Writing – Beat Your Distractions

Every time you stop writing, there’s a powering up process needed to sit back down, pick up the pen or put your fingers on the keys, and getting your head back into writing.

And that takes time. Time that you could be spending writing.

So what do you do?

In the last post on finding time to write (“Find Time For Writing- Know Your Distractions”), you identified the things that pull you away from creation.

If you haven’t got a list, please stop and make one now.

Go ahead- I’ll wait.

Time at the Renaissance Faire

Now, once you’ve got your list, the next step is to do as much as you can to eliminate or at least postpone distractions

  • Shut down the social media
  • Do the housework tomorrow instead
  • Put on sound eliminating headphones
  • Send your loved ones to the movies

Some solutions are pretty self- evident. Some may take a more creative approach to clear them away for awhile and give you time to write

Good thing, then, that you’re a writer. That means that you have the creativity needed to come up with ways to eliminate those distractions if that’s what you want….
