“3. What if someone reads what I’ve written?
“4. What if nobody reads what I’ve written?
“5. I have to mow the lawn, clean the closets, wash the car, run a load of laundry right now.
“6. I have to check my email.

“8. I have to check my Facebook page.”
Have any of the above been a distraction for you? I know I’ve personally fallen for a couple of them. It’s just so easy to do. To stay focused takes work. It’s in these times where we must dig down deep and get the writing done or whatever we might be doing that needs to get done for our writing. Even if you can only get one sentence written in a day, at least it’s something. That might lead to two or even a whole scene. Who knows. The bottom line, just write.
Can you relate to the picture above?
So what kind distractions have kept you from your writing?
