If you’ve ever worked from a computer, you know what I mean when I say it’s a struggle to avoid surfing the internet…rather aimlessly
most some days.
This is how my day went yesterday:
8:30 a.m. Check twitter, facebook, email, celebrity news….
9:30 a.m. write.
9:31 a.m. Check the daily news, you never know…Zombies may have attacked for all I know since I’ve been gone a minute from my precious World Wide Web.
10:30 a.m. Rinse with espresso and repeat morning again.
It can be a vicious cycle. Sometimes a cupcake or form of chocolate finds its way into my scedule as well:
11:00 a.m. Ransack pantry for anything containing chocolate and check to see if Justin Bieber fathered any new children since I last checked the rumor mill.
As I’ve been struggling to stay productive, I stumbled across this hilarious list, Top 10 Writing Distractions from Meredith Jaeger’s blog, The Trouble with Twenty-two. Its scary how close my own list is! What do you think? What are your biggest distractions when it comes to work?
While reading it and multitasking on 5 internet tabs, I also stumbled across a perfect Writer Cartoon (uploaded from Google+ and you can click on the image to get a bigger picture). It’s funny b/c it’s absolutely true. Many short stories end that way. Write well this Friday and prosper at any rate!
