My Past experience as a Distracted writer

Before that i was very distracted, my daily routine writing procedure was, I log in to my blog and choose a topic to write a post after that i opened a lot of tabs like Facebook, Skype, G mail and other friend’s blog. As I write few lines of my post I jump on to facebook and start checking feeds, friends messages and notifications.

Than go back on the post  and write few lines and go on to g mail and start checking mails, little hangouts these things do not stopped here, suddenly I see my phone, start checking whats app, attending calls, watching songs on TV in background .

So in short all these distraction grab my all the time and make me less productive.

There is a topic behind every writing, firstly search that topic you have to write. For that you have to required a lot of search on web and have to consider different websites, during your search you could be attracted towards various kind of web things but you just have to focused on your search topic. After that note down the things you will need during your writing.

Turn off the Internet connection

Because writing need your skills, speed of fingers and data that you have already written. So to write with proper concentration and without distraction turn of your internet connection.

Stop Multi – tasking

This is a common habit we can found in most of the people including me like do multiple things at a single time even while writing. So firstly stop doing these things like chatting with friends, checking mails, updating status on Facebook, attending phone calls, watching TV, enjoying snacks during writing. Just focused on writing forget other things.

Avoid online and offline distraction

Make a distraction free, calm and DND atmosphere  for this you have to shut down your Mobile phones notifications, Facebook, you tube and other social surfing. Say to your family members and friends I am on DND mode please until i am writing do not disturb me.

Switched off  TV

During writing unplugged your TV connection it will help you to write with more focused mind. To play background music is just a distraction and a reason of undue noise which divert your mind towards fun and you get being distracted. But if you really loves music than you can create a perfect playlist which co-operate to your work and keep you cool while writing.

Switched off your mobile phone or turn off chat apps

Mobile phones and apps loaded in it distract a writer too much. So while you start writing switched off your phone but if you can’t switched off it due to some important calls than shut you mobile internet data. so that you will not get any notification and message on any social app that will help you to be more productive.

Just Focused on writing

While you remove all the things, shut all the devices those can distract you, now its time to concentrate on just writing. Complete the topic you start without any distraction. Stop looking things around you and set a time limit to finish your searched writing topic.

    Distraction and destruction, these two words, both come in the way of a blogger.

    I agree with the thoughts expressed by the author above. Distraction is not in your hand, but if you have that strong determination to overcome it, you can.

    Stop being a superhuman, as if you can be like superman. Stop multi-tasking, it’s such a distraction. It would be better if you just focus on one thing before you do another.

    As what I’ve read, you should avoid both online and offline distraction. Turn off your chat box, TV, cellphone and the likes that can disturb you from working.

    Do the tips shared above, and just focus on your writing job, then the distraction will not bother to destruct your working hours again.

    Great post indeed! :)

    Best,

    HI Rupali. Glad to meet you. After reading this valuable post regarding distractions, i like to share the following with you-
    On the brightest sunny day, the most powerful magnifying glass will not set a piece of paper a fire if you keep moving the glass. But if you focus the light and hold it on one spot, the paper will burn. This is the power of concentration.
