Today, I had every intention of siting at my desk to hammer out a couple of ideas for my new writing courses. What new short stories ideas could I muster? I could start my next ‘scene’ assignment due mid-December. Guess what happened? DISTRACTIONS. I enjoy social media and web-surfing and my 2 hours were quickly dwindled away with all kinds of activities, none of them focusing on my goal of writing. The closest I got was web surfing some of my favorite writing sites and purchasing some new books.
Do you have this problem, where you don’t have an immediate idea or step in process to take ,and get distracted? If so how do you deal?
