So, I’ve been having trouble writing lately. One problem I’ve had this past
week – other than words will not come – is that my focus is shot. I am always doing something else when I mean to sit down and write.
So yesterday I had an idea. I downloaded a timer app and set it to fifteen minutes. For minutes, I would write. Or stare at the screen. I would at least try to write.
I would not:
- check my twitter
- Google random things
- Play games
- Watch TV
- things other than stare and write words on the screen.
I managed this yesterday. I checked twitter after my timer went off and then went back to the work in progress.
In this way, I wrote 549 words yesterday.
I am hoping I can do it again today.
