    Help to stop distractions :)

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by DukemNukem, Dec 28, 2010.

    I'm routinly distracted when i'm trying to focus, 3 hours ago i sat down to write up and idea that's been floating around my mind all day then half way through i go on 8 ball pool and i spend 2 hours playing that before realising that i had infact sat down to work on my idea...

    anyone got any ideas how to stop getting easily distracted?

    :(

    Deliberately insert some fluff into your mouse wheel - playing games becomes unbearably infuriating.

    Haha, oh it's hard not to be distracted. I'd say disconnect your internet as the internet seems to be the source of most of my distractions. :p

    Use a voice recorder instead of typing it. I do that sometimes. Freecell and Sudoku are my time wasters :)

    Adderall?

    Seriously, if you aren't suffering from adult ADD, there is no answer. Writing is discipline like anything else. But unlike everything else, it's also compulsive. You want to or not. You might need diagnosis. Or you might need to make a choice.
