Last week, I wrote a post about what I am learning as a fairly new writer – or at least as a (brand new) novelist. It was called Arse in Seat.
Over the next few weeks, I will write about my own writing journey – and I hope (very much) that those of you on similar journeys will share your experience as well. That way we all learn from each other.
Before you sit down, get a drink and a snack and go to the bathroom.
Turn off Facebook
Turn off Twitter
Shut down your email inbox
Turn off Instagram
Turn off Pinterest
Turn off the TV and the radio
Turn off the ringer on your phone (and no, putting it on vibrate is not actually turning it off)
Do not answer the door
Don’t look out the window
Don’t open the fridge (again)
Lock your children in the closet
Do put your arse in the seat and write. 😎
That was very helpful I am sure. You’re Welcome.
And if you are lacking a little confidence, read this by Jeff Goins – Stop Looking For Ways To Not Be Awesome.
Now, I am going to stop distracting myself with this blog and do me some novel writin’.
But before I go, please do tell. How do you keep yourself undistracted?
