Focus, Discipline, and Silence

Sometimes I have to trick my brain into focusing to get some good writing time. Yesterday I put the earbuds in. And that’s all, really. No music. They weren’t even plugged into the computer. They separated me from wave of distractions just enough to create a small bubble of focus. The magical effects lasted for an hour and then I moved on to the work that I’m actually paid to do 😉

And now, this morning, it’s time to tackle chapter 11 again.

How do you get yourself to plunk down and focus on your writing?
